Canned insects are a comparable substitute to live definitely! I’ve never personally used them but they carry most all of the same nutrients. I have heard though that they tend to be pretty smelly so brace yourself!

The problem with freeze dried is that it takes away the enzymes that help digest the chitin and canned are just gooey preserved insects so none of their nutrients have been “zapped” out 🙂
