Foods High in Uric Acid 2

Foods High in Uric Acid

Dietitians and nutritionists commonly measure foods high in uric acid by measuring the total purine content of food.
Many advisers tell gout sufferers to avoid anything over 400mg and restrict foods in the 100-400mg range, but you should treat this advice with caution.

Firstly, you must realize that typical portion sizes vary enormously.
The top of the list of foods high in uric acid is Theobromine.
This is commonly found in chocolate and other cocoa products, but to get 100g you need to eat 10 to 100 kilos (i.e. well over 20 pounds of even the richest chocolate).

Secondly, the effect of foods high in uric acid depends on direct absorption through the digestive tract. Most uric acid derives from the breakdown of your cells as part of normal metabolism. The
overall contribution of foods high in uric acid is debatable - figures of between 5% and 15% are common.

Purines Warning
Please be careful about getting obsessed with the purine content of food. Though purines in food can have a slight effect on uric acid, there are many other factors to consider.

Foods High In Uric Acid Table

You should use the information in the table below only as a guideline. Many other factors, besides foods high in uric acid, affect the risk of gout attacks.
If you do feel that it is important to manage foods high in uric acid, then you should measure your total intake. Multiply the weight of your food (in grams) by the value from the table and divide this by 100 to give your uric acid intake in milligrams. In this way you can calculate a total intake from the list of foods high in uric acid for every meal. You need to find the level that you can tolerate best by trial and error.
