All things jelly

Does anyone have any experience in feeding ants with Beetle Jelly?
It contains both sugar and protein, so I was wondering if it would be a good all-round ant food.

Also, have anyone tried water gel and water gel crystals?
It's basically just water in jelly format to prevent drowning.

It would depend on what kind of protein.
