In brief: Diet

Color of stool will be determined by what you eat, the digestive enzymes in your body and the bacteria in your body.
It is normal for there to be a variation in the color of your stools. If your stools turn bloody, jet black (like tar) or pale white (like chalk) you need to talk to your doctor.
