Asparagus Pee

Mar 30, 2008

I love asparagus, especially the Bacon Wrapped Asparagus Bundles prepared by Hubby B. However, I also dislike to go to the toilet after having asparagus. Why??? Because BB & I will get this distinctive smell in my pee.

I googled last night & I found the answer. According to the expert, this is not a sign of a disease. In fact, it's a good news that our kidneys are perfectly functioning. Reason being is because asparagus is filled with sulfur-containing amino acids which break down after our ingestion. Please take note that only 40% of the people with proper gene can smell this special odor. Wow... so Hubby & I are the few special one!
