Gout foods to avoid / Gout foods to eat List

For individuals managing gout, understanding the purine content in food is crucial, as purines can contribute to elevated uric acid levels. Uric acid, when accumulated in the body, may lead to painful gout attacks. In this color-coded legend, we highlight the purine content of foods using red, orange, and green. The more purine there is in a food (indicated by red), the more harmful it can be for people with gout. High-purine foods should be avoided, while moderate-purine foods should be consumed in moderation, and low-purine foods pose minimal risk. This guide aims to assist individuals in making informed dietary choices to better manage gout symptoms and maintain overall health.

Orange 50-150 mg per 100g Limit intake, especially for individuals with gout (2-3 times a week)
