What is the purine content of bananas and mangos?

High purine foods are primarily animal-based foods such as game meats, liver, beef kidneys, brains, and some fish such as anchovies, sardines, herring and scallops. There are some vegetables that have a moderate amount of purine such as asparagus, cauliflower, spinach, mushrooms and green peas. All fruits, like bananas and mangos, are considered low purine foods which is from 0 – 50 milligrams per 100 grams of fruit.

  1. I’m confused about bananas high or low purine content. I have read banana are higher in purine than any fruit & should be avoided. Then I read banana are great for gout. Which is true?
