This low purine foods list includes foods selected by category. So it includes the fruit and vegetables you expect. Plus a surprising collection of low purine meats and fish. This low purine list complements yesterday’s foods list in Is Very Low Purine Gout Diet Possible.
What are Low Purine Foods?
Low purine foods contain between 50 mg and 100 mg per 100 grams of food. So this list will help if your doctor has advised you to limit your purine intake. But remember your real target is your uric acid blood test result. So you should discuss your diet changes with your doctor when you get your blood test results.
Low Purine Foods Introduction
Just like the very low purine foods list, these foods are from recent Japanese gout research. Therefore, some foods might be unfamiliar. But, that’s just a chance to try something new. You can share some new low purine recipes in the gout forum, if you find something really tasty that’s also gout-friendly.
This gout research gives us lots of new information about the purine content of foods. I will use it to update my Purine Rich Foods List. Changing that full list of gouty purines will take time. But, for a sneak preview, here are the low purine foods listed in the Japanese gout study.

Your Low Purine Foods
Although purine control can help some gout sufferers, it’s not for everyone. And, it’s not the most important aspect of gout diet. If you are trying to control purines, it’s vital to get monthly uric acid tests from your doctor. If you are not getting uric acid lower than 6 mg/dL, you are wasting your time. A safer target is below 5 mg/dL (0.30 mmol/L).
