My uric acid level has been consistently low over the past few days, so I decided to have some beans. Just to test. Beans are the vegetable which has the highest level of purines, the amino acid combination which is the raw material for uric acid. But recently, there has been dietary advice cropping up saying vegetable purines do not affect humans. Well, let us see. Because these were not just any beans. They are fermented by special bacteria (giving them an especially icky consistency). Accordimg to the Japanese purine table, they have a lot of purines - on the level of rabbit meat. But will it raise my uric acid level? We will see tomorrow.
