Demergo – How would you like to sink a crispy, rosemary-infused cracker into a creamy, Mediterranean cauliflower spread without the high salt and fat content associated with traditional chips and dip? Demergo, meaning to sink in, completes that task while pleasing taste buds and satisfying daily nutrient intake requirements making it a delicious and nutritious heart healthy snack.
