Bloodworm Expiration Date?

A friend whose betta just died gave me a big container of freezedried bloodworms that she obviously doesn't need anymore.

I was thinking of tossing them into the gel food I am (bravely bravely) going to attempt to make today, but I suddenly realized I have no idea how old the bloodworms are.

Do freezedried things go bad? Or can I safely use them?

Hi! I've personally never heard of them going bad but I do tend to stick to the same rules for freeze-dried bloodworms as I do for all my other dry fish food...if it's over six months old I don't feed it to my fish (though I often still use certain foods to feed my live critter cultures that are to be used for fish food). This seems to be a fairly widely-accepted rule of thumb but perhaps someone else will chime in with something a little more specific. Any chance you could ask the person who gave them to you when they were purchased?
