White Flames

Chatting with my 7 yo about the different colors of fire.  He wanted to know if white flames are the hottest?  I think that answer is basically yes but correct me if that's untrue.  However, I'd like to know more about how white flames are produced.   I know that excited electrons produce specific colored photons so how do epson salts produce white flames?  Is the white color are amalgamation of different colored photons?
