Swallowing Leftover Food while Praying

Question: Given that eating and drinking during prayers invalidate prayer, is it permissible to swallow food or suck the sweets left in the mouth?
Answer: Swallowing the crumbs of food that remain in the corners of the mouth or sucking the crumbs of sugar, which are in the mouth, does not invalidate the prayer.
