Brachos Question: Food Stuck Between Your Teeth, Do You Make A Bracha?

What is the Halacha if after eating and making a bracha acharona you have food stuck between your teeth; do you need to make another bracha before swallowing it? The Shevet HaKehosi paskens (1:95) that since this food is no longer considered food you do not make a bracha on it.

He distinguishes this case from the case where you ate food and forgot to make a bracha. If it is still in your mouth and cannot be spit out since it is already chewed you put it to the side of your mouth and make a bracha. In that case he says although the chewed food is not considered food for the purpose of making a bracha on it, the bracha you make is going on the food from before it entered your mouth which was real food. Although you are a little late to make a bracha and should have done so before putting in your mouth, since it is still in your mouth it is not yet too late to make a bracha.
