Urine moves wastes and extra water out of the body. Most of the time, its transit is uneventful and the normal output of urine will appear pale yellow to amber in color and bear little to no odour. But sometimes urine may look or smell different.
Normal urine color ranges from pale yellow to deep amber — the result of a pigment called urochrome and how diluted or concentrated the urine is. Pigments and other compounds in certain foods and medications can change your urine color. Beets, berries and fava beans are among the foods most likely to affect the color.
