Veal And Venison
Veal and venison are both high in purines. Ideally, gout patients should eliminate these meats from their diet as they will often trigger symptom flares. Along with veal and venison, it is particularly important to stop consuming liver and other organ meats. Doctors recommend that individuals with gout aim to consume no more than four ounces of meat each day. Generally, chicken, turkey, and other white meats contain fewer purines. Thus, they are considered healthier for gout patients than red meats like beef and lamb.
Individuals with gout need to be aware of their overall protein intake too. Many individuals consume too much protein. It may be helpful to speak to a nutritionist and get personalized recommendations on appropriate daily protein intake. Many nutritionists recommend that gout patients try to include plant-based sources of protein in their diets. Since some vegetables are high in purines, it is essential to speak with a nutritionist to get advice on appropriate meal planning before making any dietary changes.
