Two CT roots exist: *(h)ürüŋ and *āq. *(h)ürüŋ has been lost in all branches except Lena and Khalaj, although Turkish as the dialecal term ürün, which refers to milk products. Al-Kāšğarī lists both, but refers to āq as an Oghuz term that the Turks use only for horse colors. A similar dichotomy exists in modern Turkish (ak vs. beyaz, e.g.) where certain color terms are used only in certain domains.

Chuvash šură is from PT *sārïg.

Turkish and other closely related languages use beyaz, from Arabic بياض.
