In brief: Color

The color of stool doesnt matter unless they are red (bloody) white (acholic , no pigment) or back (tarry) for upper Gi bleed.
The color can be affected by what we eat. It is possible that the bile without its storage unit (the gallbladder) is passing faster through the system staining the stools.
