Our expert says:
There is no evidence that citrus can cause gout but some foods do however, trigger gout attacks. It is normally triggered by food containing high levels of purines, which can be made into uric acid inside the body. Red meat, liver, kidney, heart, anchovies, mackerel, sardines, herring, mussels, scallops and food containing yeast (beer) can trigger attacks. Fruit juices and soft drinks containing fructose can also trigger attacks.
