I've had green and purple after eating green and purple jelly. Never red, though.

Maybe it would be a good idea to skip it for a while and see if that helps?

Well, not with jello but with chocolate soymilk...I was wondering about that too though as in, is it anything to worry about or are we destined to have rainbow BM's when we eat food that isn't white or clear?

Eating blue turns poops greenish in color, that happens to healthy people as well...black licorice can do the same as well.

Several years back I did a round of teeth whitening strips I got from the dentist and those turned my poop green.  I've noticed that red velvet cake gives me red poop, and spinach give me green poop, but other than that I haven't noticed any particular food causing color changes.

Gail I think the jello just dyed your poop is all. Remember they always tell us no red jello before c-scopes because they can dye the intestines and make it look like inflammation. And I always drink a strawberry-kiwi Gatorade that is pink and it turns my poop a blue-ish green. Go figure.

 I agree with Nanners the red jello had  a dye in it that created the red poop. They also told me to avoid anything red before my scope, they can't tell what is blood and what is not. Kool Aid is even worse, drink some of that stuff and you will definitely see some funny colors smilewinkgrin

If I drink the fruit punch flavor koolaid or red licorice I get this reddish orange poop. Fruit loops, lime green poop. It's just the specific dyes they use. Kinda catches you by to boo boo if you forget that you ate something and then use the bathroom. I also found that eating cherries gives you very scary poops. Thought I had pooped blood clots until I remembered eating cherries.

Yes, for scopes we must avoid red and orange too.
 
Actually orange is allowed, they prefer only yellow and orange being consumed not red, purple, blue, brown or anything dark.

Last time I was scoped, my GI told me I could have cranberry juice. I was surprised, but he said its a natural red so its OK, but the others are artificial. Go figure, all these years of avoiding my favorite juice on clean out day, for nothing!

Anyone ever chew up a few gummy bears... only to end up pooping them whole? That's happened to me.... It's... really weird... So, I don't eat gummy bears anymore.

*lol* I dunno if that was any help or not... But I guess the point is.... food can do weird stuff once it comes out...

This is why old doc tells you not to eat red jello or soda before a scope. Its dyes the inside of the colon red and may be mistaken for irritation. Remember only ,,clear,,liquids. By the way,,Jello,, yuck.. Its like chewing ahhhhh, wellll, hmmmm, hey it yuck ok...
