This is a discussion on Freeze-dried vs frozen ? within the Frozen Food Discussion forums, part of the Food: Live, Frozen, Freeze-Dried, Pellets, etc category; are freeze-dried foods (bloodworms, tubifex) as good or better/worse than frozen ones? Any brand recommendations?...

Freeze-dried anything isn't worth it. Not only is it nutritionally incomplete, most salamanders won't touch it

Live is the ideal form, frozen is generally quite good, but freeze-dried is very poor....
