Does red wine contain fructose, and could drinking red wine, about 1/2 bottle per day, trigger or exacerbate gout?

That's it...too much fruit.

The only other place I can think of is fruit. I usually eat just a small amount, but for a couple of weeks, I've been eating a lot: bananas, grapes, apples, cherries, oranges, and tomatoes. I'm thinking that fruit, except for a piece or two, is bad. After all, it's loaded with fructose --- pun not intended.

Very cool that you're doing it yourself! Dishes cooked with wine - beef bourguignon, mussels with white wine sauces - are so delicious!

Long-term consumption of excess fructose (sodas, juice) could elevated Uric Acid, but gout requries a second trigger in the form of body's pH (acidity).

Stick to dry red wine, which has little sugar, like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir. They shoudln't move your BG much. Second, the reason why wine could trigger gout isn't due to fructose but because of its acidity; most wines' pH is something like 4. If you have elevated uric acid to begin with, wine could move your pH down and trigger gout, if you have pre-existing susceptibility to gout as evidenced by high UR to begin with. That's the mechanism for typical gout sufferers.

the yeast that brew the wine convert the sugar to alcohol and co2. and if done carefully yeast die with no left over sugar. this makes for a very dry wine. oftentimes sugar is added back to sweeten the wine improving the dept of flavor. im 100 percent paleo. on my kitchen counter is my second batch 5 gallons of wine. i have control over every ingredient.i think i will now be searching for glucose to sweeten my wine after fermentation. i form uric acid kidney stones, and used to get gout a lot so, thanks for the heads up. alcohol is not that great for you. i cook with it a lot and when i drink it i cut it with water so i can enjoy it with the meat dishes and not get so dehydrated. the store bought wines contain a whole lot of sodium metabisulfites that im allergic to. nobody needs an irritated gut from sulfides or alcohol, just another reason to dilute it to reduce gut irritation. if we wanted gut irritation we all could just eat some wheat. any way bottoms up .

I don't know but there aren't too many carbs in a half bottle of red wine. More if it is sweet, less if it is dry. The sugar of the grapes gets metabolized by the yeast into alcohol. When the fermenting is stopped there is alcohol and some sugars leftover half of which are fructose...not much of a dose with about 3.7gms carb per 5oz glass. I'd look somewhere else in your diet if you are experiencing gout but just stop the wine for a 30 elimination trail and see what happens. Maybe it's too much for you. Good luck. I plan to have a few glasses myself this evening to celebrate Christmas Eve.

I drink dry red wine, sulfides free, and it removes the gout within half an hour. The medication puricos which is supposed to prevent gout, indeed gives me gout. A half cup of lemon juice twice daily with a little water, also works wonders, especially stopping the hayfever.
