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 have used both burr oak and northern red oak to make flour and they are different but both work well.
