In brief: Yes but

Yes it is high in purine and may be a trigger of gout in some .
For most people it is safe to eat bread but it is not that high as compared to meat, seafood, alcohol and yeast.

In brief: No

Once again, diet has very little effect on serum uric acid levels.
If you have gout you control levels with meds, not diet. If you do not have gout, eat what you want.
