The article discusses a study on the buffer mechanisms in saliva. Researchers collected saliva from people and titrated it in a container containing 2 milliliters (ml.) of distilled water. They found that the buffering ability of saliva is based on its bicarbonate and phosphate content. Mucoid in saliva was unrelated to its buffer capacity.
