Saw black bean-like thing in stool. Did not have beans , only red beans , since maybe 3 days ago , why did I see something like this now?

Saw black bean-like thing in stool. Did not have beans , only red beans , since maybe 3 days ago , why did I see something like this now?

It may surprise you: and others to learn that the time it takes for food to pass from being eaten to being eliminated is about 50 hours (over 2 days!). The average time just in the large intestine is 40 hours, longer for women. So I suspect you saw one of your red beans, but transformed by passage through the bowel, now appearing black. Stay well:) ...Read more
