Question for Robert. Since mushrooms have a high purine content, are they safe to use with people who had gout symptoms? I’ve read a number of articles advising people with gout issues to avoid eating mushrooms. I have not found anything listing the purine content of specific mushrooms, so I’m not sure the generalization about avoiding all mushrooms actually applies to all mushrooms. I would hate to recommend certain medicinal mushrooms for other reasons and have that trigger a gout episode. What is your advice? Thanks.
