Our expert says:
Asparagus contains certain sulphur compounds (dimethyl sulphide, dimethyl disulphide, dimethyl sulphoxide, etc) that have a strong smell when metabolised. When these compounds are excreted into the urine they also make the urine smell. Although not all people are able to smell these sulphur breakdown products in the urine, we do all excrete them.
