That’s if people are even looking at the number… for instance Choi (who published quite a few papers about gout) called peas and beans “purine-rich vegetables”. The categories people use are ridiculous. Nevermind that it’d be the wrong number to look at (most of the modest amount of purines in soy is actually harmless guanine for instance). No wonder people aren’t finding clear evidence that “vegetable purines” do anything to uric acid!
The information out there about purines is so poor that it hardly matters whether “vegetable purines” increase uric acid. People wouldn’t know how to manage their intake.
