Acorns were major in the diet of almost every Native American culture. Acorns help keep blood sugar levels down & provide tons of complex carbs & protein. Rich in vitamins B12, B6, folate riboflavin, thiamin & niacin & a good source of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, sodium, copper & zinc as well as fiber.
