Fats are invariably the mixture of different triglycerides and have different melting points. Therefore they do not melt at fixed temperature but over a range of temperature. The melting point is the temperature at which solid and liquid phases are in equilibrium. While melting point of fat is related to its physical and thermal properties.… Read More »
