Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout? Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement safe for gout users?

In brief: None will effect gou

Gout is related to URIC ACID and PURINES, not amino acids or protein supplements.
BUT, since everything you mention is a complete waste of money, why bother to ask? There are meds used to control gout in different ways. Low dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics tend to raise uric acid levels. Alcohol, especially in large amounts, often causes attacks. Low purine diets are slightly effective.
