What in the world would make ones urine smell exactly like sauerkraut? It sounds funny, I know. DW and I have noticed for about four months that our pee smells like sauerkraut. What the heck is this? Could it be that be recently moved to a new home that is on a well, as opposed to city water?

Seriously, the urine smells just like sauerkraut. Just like it. FTR, our vaginas do not smell like sauerkraut, just the pee.

You haven't been fermenting cabbages in your bladders, have you?

Do you eat a lot of asparagus or take a B-Complex? I've heard both can produce a strong sour smell in urine.

I would not say we eat a lot of asparagus....about twice per month.

I am serious. It smells EXACTLY like sauerkraut.

Hmm, just from googling I'm not finding anything that specifically states a sauerkraut smell but am finding that high blood pressure and bacteria can cause a strong sour smell to urine.
