A leading company in Kosher certification has dropped some Starbucks drinks from its acceptable consumption list.
    
The Baltimore Sun reports Star-K said this month that it’s dropping drinks with “syrups, sauces, toppings, powders, soy or almond milk” after Starbucks ended an expanded kosher certification program with the Baltimore-based company. Starbucks’ Americanos, espressos, cold brew coffee and iced lattes remain on Star-K’s kosher list.
