Has anyone used this and if so in what quantities, I wouldn't mind trying this on experimental things instead of using tylose if it works.

Is there a substitute I could use for Tylose?

I would only use this for practice purposes, sounds too controvertial to be uses on cakes.

I have worked in dental offices for over 15 years. Denture powder has a lot of zinc in it and it is even being questioned for safety to use on dentures. I don't think I would chance it. Also you don't ingest denture adhesive it stays under the denture. I would be very careful. It does sound like a great idea though.
