Odd, but real question. Asparagus can make urine smell instantly bad, but is there any food that can make it smell sweet or "good"?

This is about as strange a topic as my friends and I have had had over dinner (with asparagus, I have to add).

We all know asparagus can almost instantly make your urine smell bad. In minutes, really. SO...if that is the case, there MUST be something that could, as quickly, give it other smells. Maybe pleasant or sweet? Anyone know of any food that can do that?

Fake sugar (aspartame, or Sweet-n-Lo, or whatever one is currently being used that the FDA hasn't kaiboshed yet).

So says an old episode of the Savage Love podcast, anyway. I haven't experimented, myself, mostly because I don't trust fake sugars.

I'm not totally sure about changing the smell of urine, but I do know that the flavor of semen can be easily affected by diet, so maybe the same concept can apply there as well. Sweeter foods, such as fruits (especially pineapple) can often help in making semen taste sweeter. Perhaps it would help in the smell of urine?

Not really... being well-hydrated will dilute anything, but since urine is actually the waste products of cells, brought away from their origins by the blood, and filtered by the kidneys. Anything that you digest (like the fructose and ascorbic acid (aka sugar and vitamin C) in pineapple), the flavor will be broken down and totally unrecognizable by the time it's been processed by the cells.

The reason asparagus changes the smell of your urine is that the odor-causing chemical can't be digested by the human body, so it's just excreted right away. (Weird to imagine your blood smelling like that, right?)

Similarly, the fake-sugar "foods" are not broken down by the body, so they just circulate in your blood until the kidneys pull them out and excrete them, still smelling as sweetly as they did when you ate them.

Those desolving vitamin tablets can make ya urine smell a little funky (Vit B) and pungent too.
I have no idea on what would make ya urine smell really nice. But that would be a nice feature for water sports!

Foods with high concentrations of Ketones in it can cause urine to smell sweet, but as far as sweet smelling urine, usually it's due to problems like Diabetes or neurological disorders, or taking vitamins as mentioned above.

Blueberries. If you eat them in large enough quantities. I've only had it happen with fresh ones, not store-bought.

Pineapples seem to work really well for semen and urine from what I can tell. It gives both a sweeter smell and makes semen taste better (can't speak on the taste of urine though).

Someone should conduct some experiments and report back.
