Plasma uric acid levels depend on the metabolism of purines from the diet, which typically derive from proteins. Fruits are typically low in protein, and thus do not have a large effect on serum uric acid levels. Even purine rich vegetables (such as broad beans and fava beans) have little direct impact on uric acid levels compared to other dietary sources (such as meats and alcohol)
