Natto is considered a main dish in Japan because of its high protein content.

It is also high in calories and purine: about 80 kcal and 46 mg per pack (40 grams). 

As the daily intake of purine should be less than 400 mg, eating the food a lot constantly can increase your weight and cause gout. 

Natto is also a rich source of vitamin K, which helps in the clotting of blood. If you are taking medicines like warfarin, be cautious.


Given the conditions above, the recommended daily consumption of natto is one or two packs.
