Gout

Want to reduce the risk of gout?
Mushrooms are an excellent choice

Gout Prevention ImageMushrooms are very low in kilojoules and help control appetite, making them ideal for weight control. As weight loss reduces gout attacks in overweight people, mushrooms can have an additional benefit for the gout sufferer.

 

It is important to note, despite much to the contrary, that there is no evidence that certain fruits, vegetables or mushrooms cause gout or make it worse. Evidence to date strongly indicates that non-animal foods like mushrooms, fruits, legumes, nuts and vegetables may be protective against gout and therefore should not be restricted in those that suffer from gout. In fact, a high consumption of fruit, vegetables and mushrooms is linked to a lower risk of gout.

 

In the past, the most common dietary advice was to avoid purine-rich foods like animal flesh and offal, seafood, yeast extracts, peas, legumes, lentils, spinach, asparagus and mushrooms. However, there is no evidence that a vegetable or mushroom with a modest amount of purine will raise uric acid levels and trigger a gout attack.
