Some things don't digest in the stomach/intestines, like tomato seeds or sesame seeds.  could be something like that.

Um, I don't really know much about it, but I have heard that worms can be white things in your stool. I'm sure if you look at them closely you could tell if they are worms or food.

Oh, I forgot about worms!  That's right! They are white! My daughter had worms once.  It is easily treated.  The doctor will want a stool sample.  They can give you a prescription for a pill that kills the worms.  It doesn't have any side effects that I can remember.  One big symptom of worms is having a very itchy rectum.
