Glucose drink used at park slope midwives for the gestational diabetes test has a KOA on it. Anyone know if this is acceptable?
Auspiciously absent from the lists

1) The rabbi seems like an orthodox rabbi, based on my quick online research I would probably trust his kashrus.
Do more research...

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Ask them if you can use grape juice instead.
DW's OB-GYN once told her to eat a certain count of Jelly Beans instead. 
Thanks all, will try

PSA!!

Lusty claw bourbon is using an unauthorized "OK" Kosher symbol.
This product is not, and was never certified by the OK.

(Not that it needs to, but still.)

What about plain black?
Plain black coffee is generally kosher anywhere.

Black coffee in itself is kosher, the problem is if they wash the coffee dispensers together with the treif equipment  (Read Starbucks) so you have to find out the situation in that particular store.

Flavored coffee always needs a Hechser. (Even packaged ones)

I'm assuming it's flavored, then yes.
