Can florastor (probiotic) cause a fast transit time in your bowel and make your stool a light brown, tan color?

Yes, any change in diet or supplements like Florastor can cause a change in fecal color. It is of no consequence and should go back to normal color within a week or so of starting the probiotic as your system (and the flora that already inhabit your intestines) become accustomed to it.

All the best,
