Tomatoes are delicious and all of us like
them very much. They are a great addition to the diet and
they are more than just desirable when you want to enjoy a great salad. Should you consume tomatoes? Tomatoes are 90% water and we all know that
water is more than just essential for all us, gout sufferers. As a matter of fact, 100 grams will contain
237 mg of potassium and about 18 calories. This is less than many other vegetables, so
they are not dangerous. Are tomatos high in purines? The answer is no. We all know that food rich in purines can
cause gout attacks, so we must avoid them, but this isn’t the case with tomatoes. Also, avoid cooked tomatoes and processed
ones. The best alternative is organic tomatoes. They are the healthiest and the safest for
us.

In addition, avoid exotic or different types
of tomatoes. They are rich in pH levels, so they may increase
the levels of your uric acid, as such, they must be kept away from your diet. For more information regarding gout and gout
