5. Asparagus and cauliflower
Asparagus is known to contain a moderate amount of purine. However, as a rich source of vitamins B, E, and C, rich in fibers and folic acid, you should just moderate consumption rather than cut it out completely. The recommended amount is ½ cup serving, no more than five times a week. Again, do not consider taking asparagus during the flare-up. Consider using other vegetables such as okra or leeks.
Cauliflower is an excellent food for those in need of folic acid, vitamin C, fibers and salt restriction. Unfortunately, it contains a lot of purine. Recommended intake is not more than ½ cup, five times a week. However, if you enjoy cauliflower and its texture, try replacing it with broccoli which contains significantly less purine.
