2. Meat

Organ meats like liver, kidney, tongue, and sweetbreads are high in purines and best avoided. Red meat does not have quite as many purines as organ meat but can still cause problems and should only be eaten occasionally. Turkey is high in purines, too. When it comes to meat, chicken and duck are the safest choices.
