What Is the Color of a Normal Pancreas?

The color of a normal pancreas is a slight gray-pink. The pancreas weighs approximately 3 ounces, and has a length of about 6 to 9 inches.

The pancreas is a gland that secretes enzymes and hormones that are used in the intestines and the blood. The islet, also a gray-ish pink color, is the hormone-secreting portion of the pancreas. The pancreas has three parts: the head, body and tail. All three parts of the pancreas are the same color. The head is to the right of the abdomen and the tail is to the left, with the body between them.
