Icelandic Ísey Skyr builds on a remarkable legacy. For centuries, the cultured dairy product skyr formed a cornerstone of the national diet and helped to keep people strong in living conditions that were often harsh. Through generations, women on family farms nurtured the dairy, passing on knowledge, the recipe and the original skyr cultures from mother to daughter. Of course, the production process is more high-tech these days, with rigorous quality standards. However, the basic recipe and the use of original cultures to ferment the skimmed milk remain the same.
