There are many reasons can induce dark or black stools, including eating certain foods or taking iron supplements. However, it also can be a result of bleeding, with the color indicating that the blood could be coming from a point in the upper gastrointestinal tract. When stools are black or tarry due to the presence of blood, it is called "melena." "False melena" refers to stools that are dark or black, but actually do not contain any blood.
