This edamame and gout page features a little background information about edamame. Mainly, I wrote it to provide a gout food recipe that should help you improve your gout diet.
Edamame beans are a type of soy beans. As such, there is evidence to suggest they are good for gout. Specific advice about edamame as a good gout food is limited. However, if you search GoutPal for edamame information, you will find related studies that suggest these beans can help with inflammation and uric acid control. I am still researching this topic and waiting for new information. As we learn more about the health-promoting compounds contained in soy beans.
Soy beans are a useful alternative source of protein for gout sufferers who eat too much meat. I don’t expect people to adopt a vegetarian diet, but most gout sufferers will benefit from some switching from animal protein to dairy and vegetable sources. I think it is best to make changes gradually, as this is most likely to stick. Therefore, start by switching from meat once a month, then increase that until you reduce meat consumption to safe levels.
Edamame and Gout Recipe
This simple, but tasty recipe replaces animal protein with soy protein from edamame beans. The recipe comes from The Enlightened Kitchen by Marie Oser.
