Is it ok to drink protein powder (whey protein) if I have gout? I used to love this as a breakfast supplement but now am not sure if it's a good idea

In brief: Yes

Diet has very little influence on serum uric acid levels.
However, if you have gout you should be on allopurinol to normalize serum uric acid level and prevent future attacks.
