ibn ‘Abbas (r.a.): The Inevitable Does Not Break the Fast
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Those things which one could not protect one’s self from, such as swallowing one’s saliva, the dust of the road, sifting flour and so on are all overlooked. These are inevitable and unavoidable. ibn ‘Abbas (r.a.) ruled that there is no problem with tasting liquid food or something one wishes to purchase. This is so since the intention is not to break the fast.
