    Once you boil the tannins out you can eat the acorns. Some of the local Indians make some kind of flour with them.

    I believe I read somewhere at one point the red oak is more bitter than the white oak. The whitetail deer prefer the white oak over the red oak because they are not as bitter. I think the bitterness comes from the tannins.

    Yes American Indians made flour from the acorns



    At least 450 species of oak populate world wide. Some 30 species in the United States have been used for food and oil.

    Acorns are quite nutritious. For example, the nutritional breakdown of acorns from the Q. alba, — the white oak — is 50.4% carbohydrates, 34.7% water, 4.7% fat, 4.4.% protein, 4.2% fiber, 1.6% ash. A pound of shelled acorns provide 1,265 calories, a 100 grams (3.5 ounces) has 500 calories and 30 grams of oil. During World War II Japanese school children collected over one million tons of acorns to help feed the nation as rice and flour supplies dwindled.
