Beloved for its versatility, rich texture and taste, it’s no wonder that skyr – thick, creamy icelandic-style strained yogurt – has been gaining popularity. One skyr brand that’s making headways in the market is Norr Organic.
Norr stands out for its commitment to using organic, locally sourced ingredients from Pennsylvania family farms with grass-fed cows. With its clean list of ingredients and the incorporation of probiotics and botanical infusions, Norr is a top choice for anyone seeking a nourishing and health-conscious snack.
Their single serve whole milk plain yogurt packs an impressive 16 grams of protein and 0 grams of added sugar. Even their flavored options contain less than 6 grams of added sugar, offering a guilt-free indulgence compared to other brands which can contain 12 grams or more of added sugar. The skyr also comes in 16 oz containers for those looking for flexibility in their consumption.
Probiotics are essential for maintaining a healthy gut and a strong immune system. High-quality yogurts like Norr often incorporate billions of probiotic strains, specifically BB-12, into their fermentation process. BB-12 has been scientifically proven to be effective in supporting gut and immune health, making Norr an excellent choice for those looking to bolster their microbiome.
Now, let’s talk about flavor. Norr’s selection includes the subtle yet satisfying vanilla chamomile to the fruity rosewater hibiscus. What sets the selection apart is the infusion of botanicals such as rosewater, chamomile, lavender, and elderflower. These botanicals are renowned for their calming and anti-inflammatory properties, enhancing the snack’s health benefits. For the pumpkin spice enthusiasts, Norr offers a seasonal pumpkin spice variation – a delectable take on the autumn fan favorite.
Skyr in general offers a sense of convenience. It can be enjoyed easily – grab it for a quick on the go snack, recharge after workouts, or savor it in a bowl with sliced bananas, your favorite granola, and a dollop of nut butter.
The brand’s crowning feature is its unwavering commitment to using only the finest organic ingredients. Free from pesticides, artificial sweeteners, starches, and natural flavors, Norr’s dedication to purity guarantees one of the cleanest ingredient lists in the yogurt aisle, ensuring peace of mind as you savor this genuinely delicious product.
The best part? Norr is budget-friendly. Typically priced around $2.69 and found at your natural retailer, it’s an accessible choice for those seeking a healthy snack that won’t break the bank. Here in New York City, Norr can be found at Fairway Market, Westside Market, Eataly, Union Square Market, and Park Slope Coop, among other locations.
