Why beetroot turns poop and pee red
They also leave their traces in the poop and pee of some people. The technical term for the presence of the red beetroot pigments in urine or stool is beeturia. When oxalic acid levels are high, the red color is preserved and this can lead to red poop in people who do not normally experience beeturia. Eating these in combination with beetroot can therefore leave those not used to red poop with a surprising experience.
