what is icelandic-style skyr?
Skyr is the traditional yogurt of Iceland that has been made for over 1,000 years. It is a strained non-fat yogurt. It is made by incubating skim milk with live active cultures. Then the watery whey is strained away to make for a much thicker, creamier and concentrated yogurt. It takes four times the milk to make one cup of siggi’s compared to regular yogurt.
Is your product made in Iceland?
siggi’s skyr is made based on an age-old Icelandic recipe but we practice our craft in Canada, using 100% Canadian milk.
Are your products kosher?
Yes, all of siggi’s dairy products are certified kosher.
Is siggi’s organic?
siggi’s is not certified organic, however, we use 100% Canadian milk; which does not use any kind of growth hormones such as rBST.* All of siggi’s products have 100% natural ingredients and are made without artificial sweeteners or colouring. We keep our ingredient list simple and ensure that our products are made with the best ingredients.
*Like all Canadian milk.
If there is liquid on top of my yogurt when I open it, is that ok?
The liquid that can occasionally be found on top of yogurt is whey. A slight separation of whey from the yogurt is totally natural and nothing to worry about. When that happens you can either stir the whey back in for a smoother yogurt or pour it off. The whey is mainly water but contains some minerals and nutrients including calcium and some whey protein. Our yogurt can occasionally have this slight separation because in order to keep our ingredients to a minimum, we do not add any starches or stabilizers that might prevent this type of separation from happening.
Is it ok to eat yogurt after the “best before” date?
No, we recommend that you enjoy any siggi’s products by the “best before” date listed on our packaging.
why is my siggi’s skyr lighter than other yogurts?
At siggi’s, we do not add any colour to our products so the colour you see is the natural colour that comes exclusively from the fruits or vanilla bean we use.
What are the black specks in my vanilla skyr?
The specks that you see in our vanilla flavoured products are actually specks of real vanilla bean from the Madagascar vanilla we use!
Do you add sugar to your products?
We want to keep any sugar in our products, even if natural, to a minimum. siggi’s products are lightly sweetened with organic agave syrup or cane sugar, then there is also a bit of sugar that naturally comes from the fruit that we add. We do not use any artificial sweeteners or high fructose corn syrup.
is your cup recyclable?
Yes, siggi’s cups are made from recyclable #5 plastic. To learn more, we suggest you contact your local municipality about your local recycling program.
Are your products gluten-free?
Our products do not contain any added gluten. However, we are not certified gluten free. They contain no wheat, barley, rye, or triticale, and we do not use gluten as a food additive in the form of a flavouring, stabilizing or thickening agent.
Why does your yogurt have so much protein?
When making skyr, we start by making a base that is kind of like regular yogurt. Then we strain the watery whey, and wind up taking about 75% of that water out. This means that to make one cup of skyr we require about 4 times the amount of milk required to make a regular cup of yogurt. As a result of this process, skyr contains 2-3 times the protein count of standard yogurt.
What is the origin of the pectin in your products?
Apple or citrus peels.
I am lactose-intolerant, can I still enjoy siggi’s?
Our yogurt products have less than 3% lactose in each serving as much of the lactose is removed along with the whey during the straining process. However, our products are not lactose-free.
how much calcium is in your yogurt?
In a 175g serving of plain 0%, there is about 180mg of calcium per serving.
