Freeze dried bugs?

I have a friend who runs an online feed store for hermit crabs, and while I was digging through her shop, I came across all sorts of freeze dried things like silkworms, mealworms, crickets, snails, earthworms, and a couple of others.

She's donating a sampler of these to my frogs, but I was wondering if I could crush up some of the silkworms to feed to my bettas?

Everything is organic (because hermit crabs are so closely related to insects that pesticides will mess them up), and I'm hoping to give it a try.

I wouldn't; only because its freeze dried. Freeze drying takes out the nutrients and makes it harder to digest.

I was planning to soak them before offering. But I didn't think it'd be too far off from the pellets or flakes that we feed, just minus all of the random chemicals

the other alternative is to mix them with the bettas' shrimp smoothie, and freeze into cubes.
