Candy Temperatures

Candy derives from sugar syrup, which is sugar and water boiled together. When sugar syrup is cooked the water boils away and the concentration of sugar in increases accordingly and, as a result the temperature rises. The highest temperature that the sugar syrup reaches before you remove it from the heat, will determine what the sugar syrup will be like once it has cooled down.

Deep Fry Temperatures

Deep frying is a cooking process where food is completely submerged in hot oil, usually at temperatures between 177°C / 350°F and 191°C / 375°F.  Once food is submerged in the hot oil, the surface of it begins to react with the oil which breaks down the sugars and proteins found in the food or coating, which in turn gives the food its characteristic golden brown coloring.

Deep frying food in hot oil, allows the water within the food to be heated quickly, essentially steaming i. As long as the oil is hot enough and the food is not immersed in the oil for too long, oil penetration will be confined to the outer surface.

The correct deep frying temperature depends on the thickness and type of food, but in most cases it lies between 177°C–191°C / 350–375°F.
