In brief: Uric acid

They contribute minor amounts.
Best diet : 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, some soy as protein. Eat lots of fruit and veggies. Drink 3 liters per day.
