I would like to know if CMC powder is the same as Tylose? what is the diference? I was told CMC was more expensive than Tylose I though they were the same thing until now.
and what is Dyocel? do they work the same?

CMC & Tylose are the same thing. Tylose is just a trade name.

Dyocel(l) looks like a product from a New Zealand producer that may result in something similar, but it's not readily available in the US. I'm not fond of the instructions for using it:
"Mix one teaspoon of Dyocell into 100gram fondant until dry and brittle. Dip into water, work through and repeat until desired texture."

Reads like a mess and a lot of trouble to me. With CMC/Tylose, you just knead it in and go.
