Acorn’s Legacy: Bridging Tradition (Internal Seminar)
Mr. Kovan, Assistant Lecturer, recently gave an internal seminar on the benefits and uses of acorns to the staff of the Medical Analysis Department, Faculty of Applied Sciences at Tishk International University (TIU) . During the seminar, Mr. Kovan discussed the various health benefits of acorns, which are the fruits of oak trees (Quercus spp) and are found all over the world. They have been a staple food source for humans and animals for centuries. Mr. Kovan mentioned that acorns have also been used as medicine to treat a variety of illnesses due to the high levels of antioxidants it contains.
One of the environmental benefits is using acorns as a coffee substitute, as acorns are a sustainable and locally-sourced alternative to coffee beans. By using acorns instead of coffee, we can reduce our carbon footprint and support local farmers. It can also be used as a nutritious food source that can be used in a variety of recipes, including bread, cakes, and porridge.
The seminar was well-received by the department staff, who were interested in learning more about the benefits of acorn. Many staff members expressed an interest in trying acorns as a coffee substitute and incorporating it into their daily routines. Mr. Kovan’s seminar was a valuable learning experience and highlighted the many benefits of acorns as a health and environmental alternative to coffee.
