What causes change in consistency of stool?

default
Posted on Wed, 11 May 2016
Question: I had a good bowel movement this morning with all of it a normal color but one of the logs was totally white, and I never had that before. Two hours later when I went again, it was all a normal color. I have a minor case of IBS, had a turkey burger for the first time yesterday and two brownies for the first time yesterday, and I have been eating organic corn chips for a few weeks that I never ate before either. I wonder if I need an ultrasound. I feel fine.
