Abstract
Data is presented on the colour and spectral reflectances of stool samples from healthy young infants (mean age 6 days). The range of spectral reflectances is well described by a pigment mixture model with three components-a pale component corresponding to partially digested milk fats, a yellow component corresponding to bilirubin breakdown products, and a dark component corresponding to meconium and bilirubin. Most stools were tan, beige or olive but white, grey and light grey were also observed.
