Are Bettas Able to Eat Maggots?

What the title says... But, the only thing that worries me if the maggot could transfer any disease to my fish? I would assume they have some form of protein to provide? Please feel free to share your thoughts. Thank you.

My Bettas get the maggots that show up in microworm cultures. I started my baby elf on them. as long as you only collect them from actual cultures you make or buy them on line instead of just picking them up somewhere you will be ok
