Default Awsome White worm food!

I have had whiteworms for about 2-4 months now probably and have been using wheat bread for food. Well a couple days ago I tried some Mazuri Tortoise Diet for my whiteworms. They are cubes about 1/2 inch long. The whiteworm population is growing better and faster. I think it is because in the wild they eat organic material and these pellets are made from soybeans, ground corn, alphalpha, and many plants which is a more natural food for whiteworms. I also think they will be more nutritious for my baby newts. I just moisten them first.
Here are some percents:
Crude protein, min...15%
Crude fan, min...3%
Crude fiber,max...18%
Calcium,min...0.95%
Calcium,max...1.45%
Phosphorus,min...0.6%
