Q. I need a list of vegetables that contain uric acid please. Thank you.
A. Uric acid is produced when the body breaks down compounds called purines. Foods high in purines may need to be limited for those who suffer from gout. Fortunately, all fruits and many vegetables are considered low purine foods. Some vegetables contain higher levels, so limit: asparagus, cauliflower, spinach, mushrooms, green peas, and dried lentils, peas and beans to only one serving per day.
