Oxalate: Although many foods contain oxalate, only nine foods are believed to increase importantly in the urine and then promote kidney stone formation. They are: beets, spinach, rhubarb, strawberries, nuts, chocolate, tea, wheat bran, and all dry beans (fresh, canned, or cooked), excluding lima and green beans. It is best to avoid these foods. Drinking 3 to 4 liters per day of fluid is essential.
