Question

A young infant may be feeding entirely on mother's milk, which is white in colour but the stools, which the infant passes out, is quite yellowish. This yellow colour is due to?


  1. intestinal juice

  2. bile pigments passed through bile juice

  3. undigested milk protein casein

  4. pancreatic juice poured into duodenum


Solution

The correct option is B

bile pigments passed through bile juice


The stools, which the infant passes out is quite yellowish due to bile pigments passed through bile juice. Bile pigments contain pigments called bilirubin and biliverdin, which are obtained by recycling of dead and worn out RBCs. These pigments are typically responsible for imparting colour to the stool.
