Gout is a disorder of purine metabolism. Purines are compounds, which are components of purine bases. Therefore.... Foods high in purine can and should be avoided. Aside from seafood, beef is also on the list of purine-rich foods. Some vegetables contain high levels of purine. Spinach, asparagus, cauliflower, and peas are vegetables to consider. Note that, although purine rich meats foods can exacerbate gout, in most individuals, vegetables do not. In some individuals, milk and cheese reduce the chances of gout. Obviously, everyone is genetically different, and what works for some, may not work for others. However, these are important things to consider, since you can use a food diary to see what may be exacerbating gout, and omit it from your diet. The following is a list of foods high in purine: Meat, poultry, fish, tofu, kidneys, brains liver, sweetbreads, offal, anchovies, sardines, seafood in general, asparagus, mushrooms, spinach, cauliflower, peas, lentils, meat extracts, gravies, and last, but not least, alcoholic beverages.
