Euanthe Alya. stools. June 23rd , 2017.
As we all know, the bile (digestive juices) mixes with the food once it reaches the small intestine. Bile, which is green in color, promotes breakdown of fats to boost digestion. Thus, the food attains green color when it enters the small intestine. Undigested green food is diverted to the large intestine, where it changes to light brown. This happens because of bacterial activity in the large intestine. However, if the undigested food has traveled at a faster pace through the large bowels, there will be hardly any interaction between the stool formed and the bacteria present in the large intestine. As a result, the stool color doesn't change to light brown and instead appears green.
Eating foodstuffs that are not cooked properly or prepared in unsanitary conditions can cause food poisoning. Having contaminated food makes a person fall sick and the illness may give rise to green bowel movement.

I know that water is not food, but it can help in softening stool as well. It is recommended that you drink at least 2 liters or slightly more than eight 8 oz. glasses of water each day. Water aids in digesting our food and softening stool too. The amount of water you need to drink each day will vary as per your geographic location. If you are living in a more dry, warm area, then you should drink more water.
