Thor’s Skyr, the American-made skyr brand using traditional Icelandic methods and all-natural ingredients, announces its new lactose-free formula with more protein per serving.
The Thor’s Skyr unique lactose-free formula will debut alongside three new flavors at this year’s Natural Products Expo East on September 20 through September 23 in Philadelphia.
According to Data Bridge Research, the U.S. lactose-free market is currently valued at $12.6 billion and, growing at an annual rate of 12.45%, is expected to reach $32.2 billion by 2029.
The brand new Thor’s Skyr formula allows dairy and non-dairy consumers alike to receive the protein-packed benefits of skyr made from cow’s milk, while also making it easier to digest, maintaining lower blood sugar levels.
The new lactose-free formula is also naturally sweeter, removing the need for added sugar in their flavored offerings, which include vanilla, strawberry, and blueberry, as well as three new flavors launching this fall: coconut, key lime, and coffee.
Icelandic skyr makers have been producing lactose-free skyr for the past decade, and in an effort to provide Americans with authentic skyr that is inclusive for all to consume, Thor’s Skyr is now bringing those same methods to the U.S.
The new recipe also results in a higher protein content—the fan-favorite plain Thor’s Skyr now has 21 grams of protein per 6-ounce cup, while the flavored offerings contain 18 grams of protein—which is particularly significant as other skyr brands are reformulating their recipes to offer less protein per serving.
Now available in over 1,600 stores nationwide, including Giant and Stop & Shop, Thor’s Skyr was founded by actors Dylan Sprouse and Terry Crews; actor and professional strongman Hafþór Björnsson; and restaurant veteran and entrepreneur Unnar Beck Daníelsson.
With more protein and less sugar than yogurt, Thor’s Skyr is the perfect choice for breakfast, lunch, or a late-night snack.
Those attending Expo East will be able to sample the new formula and flavors firsthand at Booth #2523, while the new formula begins to roll out in stores across the country in the coming weeks.
