- bile pigment Any of the complex, highly colored waste products of the hemoglobin of old red blood cells, found in the bile and is poured into the small intestine via the bile ducts when needed for digestion. Included are bilirubin (orange), biliverdin (green), their derivatives (urobilinogen, urobilin, bilicyanin, and bilifuscin), and stercobilin, which gives brown color to intestinal contents and feces. Van den Bergh's test is used to detect the type of bilirubin in the blood serum.
