TagPurine Foods

The Purine Foods Blog. Purine foods usually refers to food and drinks that are rich in purines, also known as High Purine Foods, or Purine-Rich Foods. Gout sufferers are concerned about these foods because they are a source of uric acid. But be careful. Vegetable purines do not affect gout. Also, more purines are generated by our natural cell turnover than we eat – which is why vegetarians get gout. You should read How Purine Foods Affect Gout before you study the High Purine Foods Chart.

Medical Disclaimer: The pupose of GoutPal is to provide jargon-free explanations of medical gout-related terms and procedures. Because gout sufferers need to know what questions to ask their doctor. 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.
