Yogurt is one of my favorite breakfast choices. It’s easy to eat, requires no cooking, and I can take it with me if I’m running late. (Ahem.) Yogurt is also one of my go-to snacks, especially for my kids, who tend to have blood sugar issues in the afternoon. The problem with many yogurts, though, is the high sugar content. Often, the yogurt has as much sugar as a candy bar – or even more! I look for low sugar content and fruit as opposed to jelly, and I was delighted to discover Siggi’s, made by the Skyr company.
From their website:
“Skyr is the traditional yogurt of Iceland. It is made by incubating skim milk with live active cultures. The whey, the water naturally found in milk, is then strained away to make for a much thicker, creamier, concentrated yogurt. So to make just one cup of Skyr, with all that water going out, you need 3 – 4 times the amount of milk required to make a regular cup of yogurt. As a result of this process Skyr comes out with 2-3 times the protein count of standard yogurt.”
