In brief: Podagra

Generally speaking, gout flares are related to high protein/high purine foods.
."organ meats, shellfish, peanuts, cashews, greens, coke...Etc stay hydrated black cherry juice is ok !, antinflammatories may help when acute. Call your pcp or rheumatoligist to prevent chronic problems including arthritis and kidney stones...

In brief: Don't know

We say lots of diet things cause gout-but we really can't prove it.
Can you see a relationship? That is most important.If it causes a flare-up in you then avoid shredded wheat.
