Has anyone ever tried SKYR(icelandic variant of yoghurt)? It is made from 'de-wheyed' buttermilk and has the consistency of yoghurt. Two analogous questions: (1) the whey which has been extracted: would anyone recommend drinking it? Why or why not? (2) the SKYR: is it a good thing to include in the diet? I have heard alot from people about the dangers of caseine and assume that SKYR being derived from buttmilk it is mainly caseine protein. That being said: Is it worth my milk money?

Coming from Iceland myself I love Skyr, but haven't found any worth my milk money here in the US (Miami area). The varieties I've found at Whole Foods have too much added sugar for my taste, but if you find one without added sugar it is great some heavy cream :D Sorry I don't have any comments on the caseine issue.
