15 Foods that Cause Gout


Asparagus is a vegetable high in purines which is also an agent of gout. When you are on a low-purine diet, try to monitor your intake of vegetables such as asparagus. An over-the-board consumption of asparagus releases purine into the body which is broken down into uric acid. Limit your consumption of this vegetable to a total of ½ cup serving, five days a week. You can replace asparagus recipes with other vegetables such as leeks or okra.[4]
