Can Twizzlers Make Your Poop Red?

By far, one of the most common Google searches that leads people to my blog is, “Can Twizzlers make your poop red?” So – I asked our resident SemiColon Blog expert, and here’s what Dr. Taormina from Midwest Gastroenterology had to say:

Dear Dr. T,
Can eating Twizzlers make your poop red?


Dr. T’s answer:
Yes. The dye in Twizzlers will make your poop red, depending on how much you eat and how rapid it transits the gut. Beware the sugarless variety ! It has sorbitol and eating enough of that will give you red-tinted diarrheal stools!

So there you have it, blog readers. Yes, Twizzlers CAN make your poop red. Now – if your poop is red, like blood, and you haven’t been eating a bag of Twizzlers, get it checked out.
