According to Healthline, oxalate is a compound found in many foods, and it can also contribute to the formation of kidney stones. Reducing high-oxalate foods in your diet can help you to promote kidney health and prevent kidney stone formation.
Here are some high-oxalate foods that you should consider reducing in your diet according to Healthline.
Chocolate is delicious, but it's also high in oxalate. Consider reducing your intake or choosing lower-oxalate options.
Beets are a nutrient-dense root vegetable, but they also contain oxalate. Try to reduce your intake or enjoying them in moderation.
Rhubarb is a tart vegetable that is often used in desserts, but it's high in oxalate. Consider reducing your intake or replacing it with other nutritious fruits for dessert.
It is important to know that not all high-oxalate foods need to be eliminated completely, and some of them can still be enjoyed in moderation. It is also important to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated to help you prevent kidney stone formation. If you have a history of kidney stones or other kidney-related problems, it's important to talk to your doctor for personalized dietary recommendations.
