It produces an odour during urination not unlike that which is produced after eating Asparagus. It is caused by the extra sodium content.

The color of the foods you eat can definitely influence the color of your urine or stools esp beets, carrots; licorice ; berrries, asparagus and rhubarbs;and cranberry juice.,etc. Discolored urine is often caused by medications, certain foods or food dyes. For instance, the dyes used in some sugary cereals can show up in kids' urine. In some cases, though, changes in urine color may be caused by certain health problems

Beets, blackberries and mom's rhubarb pie can turn urine red or pink.

Foods and supplements. Leading food culprits include vitamin C and carrots and carrot juice. Large amounts of carotene, the orange pigment in carrots, winter squash and other vegetables, can also discolor the palms of your hands and soles of your feet

Blue or green urine
A dye used in several medications that treat urinary pain (Trac Tabs, Urised) can turn urine blue. Other offenders include:

Foods. Asparagus gives urine a greenish tinge as well as a characteristic odor.

Dark brown or tea-colored urine
Food. Eating large amounts of fava beans, rhubarb or aloe can cause dark brown urine.
