I suspect the problem here is not so much the product as such but how you’re going to use it.
So far as I know, people generally use protein powders to live on bad diets. Protein powders also make it easy to consume too much protein which can indirectly make gout worse (but at that point you’d have bigger problems than gout). Normal foods are generally safer.

Another problem is that you’re vegan which means you can easily end up with a protein deficiency by diversifying carelessly. So far as I know, hemp proteins are kind of like the proteins in most nuts: a poor choice for vegans, except in small amounts.
Vegans should get much of their protein from stuff like soy, cauliflower, beans, spinach or lentils.
