Swallowing food remnants which got stuck between the teeth during Ramadhan


What’s the ruling of swallowing the remnants of food which stick to the teeth, during Ramadhan?


The position of the majority of the people of knowledge is that it breaks the fast, when swallowed intentionally, and this is what’s most correct, because it’s considered food and it isn’t considered to take the ruling of saliva; which a person can not avoid swallowing.
