Diastatic malt flour

Hi

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)?

Thanks

As to my understanding these are the same.

 

https://suite101.com/a/understanding-malt-its-variations-a207586 states that malt "powder" is ground finer than "flour".
