    On one of your pages you say that mushrooms are high in purines, why would I put them into this Vegetable Medley with Edamame then if that is the case?

    Hi Kelly,

    I hope I can make the information less confusing. I assume that the page you refer to is

    I’ve added a note(4) at the end of that list of high purine foods. I didn’t want to be misleading, but I wanted the table to include all the foods that I have purine data for. It is useful for gout sufferers who want to reduce purine intake to select foods with lower purine counts. So, yes, there are a few gouty purines in that vegetable medley, but not enough to worry about. The addition of edamame makes it even more gout-friendly. If you are still worried, try replacing the mushrooms. How about eggplant or squash? Let me know how that works out.

    I hope the information is clearer now. If it isn’t, please let me know.

    Thank you for helping me improve my website pages. I love it when people take the time to question inconsistencies. By doing so, you help yourself, me, and gout sufferers everywhere.


    Thanks Keith.
