“This suggests a big turkey dinner could trigger a flare-up in someone with gout within hours.”

The good news is that there’s plenty of healthy, plant-based foods that don’t pose a risk to your gout.

The expert added: “Although some foods found in a plant-based diet, such as mushrooms, mycoprotein (Quorn), asparagus, cauliflower, spinach, lentils and soya beans, are rich in purines, evidence shows that they are less likely to lead to gout than meat or fish. 

“It may be that the fibre, folate and vitamin C found in fruit and vegetables, for example, protects against uric acid build-up.”
