Most: In general, most will help. Fruits and vegetables don't directly reduce uric acid, but by avoiding foods high in purines, you can keep the uric acid levels lower. Here is a table of foods and their uric acid content. https://dcc2.bumc.bu.edu/goutstudy/purinecontent.aspx.

Gout and diet: Kidney impairment and diuretic meds are common causes. Diet can aggravate. So avoid alcohol, animal fats, organ meats and shellfish. Limit other meats to 4 oz per day. Avoid high fructose corn syrup containing drinks. Add egg whites, quinoa, soy as protein. Eat lots of fruit and veggies. Drink 3 liters per day. Tart cherry juice daily can help. Citrus fruits help. Add ReaLemon extract 4 tbls/d
