Thank you for the input,

Pale stool can occur when there is lack of bile. Bile secreted from the liver is stored in gall bladder to be released when food enters the gut or intestine. It gives the stool its normal color. This can occur from the diseases of liver & gall bladder like hepatitis, cirrhosis, gall stone, cholangitis, stricture , tumor or if there is any obstruction of gut. It may also occur with medication like antibiotics, & antacids. As she has wheat intolerance with bad digestion can be the factor in her case. Still if it persists for a long period, you should take her to doctor & have a stool test and other investigations to be done.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish her healthy life.
