We’ve all had that moment of panic – but if you’ve eaten any of the following foods recently then you needn’t worry!

A change in urine colour is caused by the pigments that give these foods their colour. The pigments make it through the digestive process and into your urine.

Find out what it means if your urine is:

  1. Pink/red/magenta
  2. Orange
  3. Green/yellow
  4. Brown

1. Pink/red/magenta

Beetroot, blueberries and rhubarb are foods that can temporarily turn your urine pink, red or magenta.

People seem to worry the most about this colour variant due to it looking similar to blood. Medications that can cause the urine to change to this colour are senna, chlorpromazine, and thioridazine.
