I had Asparagus last night and an hour later went we we.

It smelled like a mix of Ammonia, Mr clean ,The morn tide and linseed oil.

I have read only half the people have this smell after eating Asparagus and generally smarter ones at that..

Ok i made that up bout the smarts but this is still a very strange thing to happen..

Which half are you?.

Stinky Asparagus eater or non stinky?

Here you go - more than you ever wanted to know about the metabolic byproducts of asparagine in the urine, (http://dmd.aspetjournals.org/content/29/4/539.full#sec-6) with references to Theophrastes and Pliny the Elder, no less. You're welcome. :D

It's not whether your pee smells or not after eating asparagus - everybody's does. It's whether YOU can smell it. It's a genetic trait - like being able to roll your tongue.

Only eat the tips, cook them in either chikkin broth or water with a tsp of salt free chikkin bouillon in it.

My understanding is - some folks' stink, others don't - and it is genetic, but based on ones ability to metabolize the asparagus, or not.

Says quite a bit about all of us, that we'd bite on this one!

Chuck, the wife has been doing the shpargle (sp.? Deutsch) by rolling it in a bit of sesame oil with salt and pepper to taste and running it under the broiler until just done. Killer flavor, and you can dose it up with whatever spices you prefer.

bobbys: Next time drink a cup of white vinegar after dinner.

Be sure to report the result to us.

It won't hurt. It might help.

If you don't try it, don't blame me if you remain stinky.
