So, what is acorn?

Acorn, the nut of oak trees, is a unique and nutritious food ingredient that has been consumed by various cultures for centuries. This small, oval-shaped nut has a hard shell that must be cracked open to reveal the meaty interior. The taste of acorns can vary widely depending on the species of oak tree they come from, but they generally have a slightly sweet and nutty flavor. Acorns are rich in protein, fiber, healthy fats, and an array of vitamins and minerals, making them a valuable addition to any diet. Despite their nutritional benefits, acorns are often overlooked as a food source due to their high tannin content, which can make them bitter and difficult to digest. However, traditional methods of processing, such as leaching or roasting, can reduce tannin levels and make acorns more palatable.
