Gout Foods Table for Legumes

The gout foods table for legumes covers key foods in the Legumes and Legume Products group from the USDA food database.

My gout foods tables are based on a serving size that provides 100 calories (Kcals) of energy. This is different from most earlier food tables on GoutPal. I explain why in my gout foods table introduction, where you can learn all about these tables. If you are new to my gout foods tables, it is very important that you read that introduction, and understand what these tables are about.

Legumes are the fruit or seeds of a specific family of plants. They are generally considered to be a healthy protein source for gout sufferers. Though a vegetable, legumes are often a better alternative to items from the Gout Foods Table for Meat. In the case of peanuts, you will find many relevant comparisons in the Gout Foods Table for Nuts. Note that some out-of-date references might still include some legumes as foods high in uric acid. As I explain in that table, and the notes around my purine rich foods table, vegetable proteins are unlikely to raise uric acid levels.

The table is sorted in GoutPal Index order, where my Index is based on the best of all relevant nutrients. This is fine, as all vegetables are good, so you should concentrate on variety.

Soon, you will be able to sort the table by different columns. If you want to know when these improvements to gout foods tables are available, please subscribe to my free gout information update service.

Also, you need to understand what your doctor tells you. So this website explains gout science. But it is definitely NOT a substitute for medical advice.
