What about sugar and common salt with turmeric solution? How do we conclude about the nature?

Turmeric solution doesnot change colour in acidic and neutral solutions. 
To identify the nature of sugar solution and salt solution, pour these solutions separately in a basic solution. Since, they are neutral, no reaction will take place but if they were acidic nuetralization reaction would have taken place and the container would become warm.

Dear Krish,

On turmeric solution or on turmeric paper

1) Sugar will not change colour because it is neutral.

2) Salt will turn green because it is base and its foromula is NaoH (Sodium Hydroxide)
