People also ask, does sugar have a melting point?
You start with refined sucrose, pure crystallinesweetness, put it in a pan by itself, and turn on the heat. Whenthe sugar rises above 320°F/160°C, the solidcrystals begin to melt together into a colorlesssyrup.
Subsequently, question is, does sugar have a high boiling point? Sugar does not have an exact boilingpoint by itself as sugar does not melt or boil,but decomposes.
Just so, does salt or sugar have a higher melting point?
Sugar melts and so does salt. Tablesugar called sucrose has a melting point ofabout 186 degree Celsius while table salt melts at 801degrees. So it is possible to melt sugar on your stove, andif you can get a furnace that heats as high as 800degree Celsius plus, you can melt salt too.
At what temp does sugar caramelize?
Sugar (sucrose) begins to melt around 320° Fand caramelize around 340° F. If you heat a sugarsyrup to temperatures higher than any of the candy stages, you willbe on your way to creating caramelized sugar (the brownliquid stage)—a rich addition to many desserts.
