[♦] Question: Is the fast invalidated by tasting food?
Does every day on which the fast is performed in Ramadan require an intention, or is it sufficient to make one intention for the whole month?

[♦] Answer:   Tasting food does not invalidate the fast, if a person does not swallow it. But you should not do it unless there is a need for it; and in this situation, if any of it enters the stomach without your intending it, then your fast in not invalidated. — Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-`Uthaymeen,  Fatwa Islam
