Probably most foods will contain at least traces of nucleic acids. The ones that will contain the most are where you are eating cells directly such as meat (animal cells), vegatables/grain/fruit (plant cells), cheese/yoghurt(baterial cells). Most food stuffs are contaminated with bacteria at least at some stage in their processing, even after they have been cooked and the bacteria killed the nuceic acids are still detectable. There are some foods which are cleaned of DNA such as those processed using genetically modified organisms, examples might include certain beers and sugar.
