A study by French and Algerians comparing fat content of acorns and pistachios.

"three dominant fatty acids found are:
palmitic C16:0 (16.3–19.5%), saturated
oleic C18:1 (55.3–64.9%), mono-unsaturaed (oleic acid is named for its dominance in olive oil
linoleic C18:2 (17.6–28.4%)"

Acorn oil has a fatty acid profile similar to olive oil. YMMV according to source.

Here is the link to the study mentioned above. Thanks to permies for facilitating easy hypertext.

I am interested in your results with flour and oil Richard. Here is information on a commercial acorn flour and cap operation.
