Would "Hydration Hay" be good for grazing tortoises?

I was wondering if any of you have seen/used Hydration Hay as a part of your grazing tortoise's diet?
Here is a link to the product ingredients page:

We are now having to buy a container of the zoomed grazing tortoise food every two-three weeks to satiate Rufus' appetite for hay. So this product seems like a good alternative. The ingredients are simple timothy and orchard grass hay, alfalfa, vegetable oil (not sure if this last ingredient is a deal breaker). I could cut off chunks and at around $24 for four blocks it would be cheaper. I would love opinions on this!

If I could find it, I would use it. I use horse hay pellets. I soak them and feed. Go for it, it won't hurt.
