In brief: Common Reaction

The coloring in some foods (like beets) and medications can affect the color, smell, etc.
Of your urine, stool, emesis, etc. Purple/red urine and stool after fresh beets is normal. (the difference between being more purple or more red, depends on the pH or acidity of the fluid.
