So, what is uric?

I'm sorry, but I must inform you that there is no food ingredient called "uric." However, "uric acid" is a naturally occurring compound that is produced when the body breaks down purines, which are found in many foods. Uric acid is typically filtered out of the body by the kidneys and excreted in urine, but if there is an excess of uric acid, it can accumulate in joints and cause pain and inflammation, leading to a condition called gout. Foods high in purines, such as organ meats, seafood, and some vegetables, can increase uric acid levels in the body. It is important for individuals with gout to limit their intake of these foods to prevent flare-ups.
