Diastatic malt flour


Does anyone know whether diastatic malt flour and diastatic malt powder are the same thing?  I would have thought not but can't find anything written about diastatic malt FLOUR.

Also, can I use diastatic malt flour in my sourdough bread (500g flour, 200g leaven, 320g water)?

As to my understanding these are the same. states that malt "powder" is ground finer than "flour".
