Dried malt extract (DME) = Diastatic malt powder?

mmanishaagrawal | Nov 25, 201711:27 PM

I'm looking for diastatic malt powder with active enzymes amylase. I contacted home brewer and managed to get their Dried malt extract (DME). Are both things same? Does DME work like diastatic malt powder which has active enzymes?
A bread recipe calls for diastatic malt but it's quite expensive online and it is difficult to find locally. Any proper substitute for diastatic malt powder other than amylase powder?
