White matter in feces?

In brief: Prob diet related

Flecks of white stuff are probably diet related.
Sometimes some meds have casings that pass undigested. Parasites can be white-but generally if you can see them, they will be moving (worms). Entirely white stools can be seen after taking barium for a test, some meds, or with blockage to the flow of bile. That last one needs medical evaluation-potentially serious stuff there.
