Google Search Serves Up Food Nutrition Info

For those seeking to change their eating habits, or help with sticking to a diet, or are cooking for someone with specific nutritional requirements, the world’s most loved search engine just made it a whole lot easier.

Google Search has put the nutritional information for over 1000 common foods right into its search results page, so all you need to do is “Google” the food you want information for, and the nutrition info comes up next to the usual search results. That’s one less click and much less time spent searching the results page for what you want, which could potentially save you a lot of time.

According to Google Inside Search blog:

“Figuring out how to make smart choices about some of our favorite foods can often be a cumbersome and daunting process. So we’re hoping we can make those choices a little bit easier: starting today you will be able to quickly and easily find extensive nutrition information for over 1,000 fruits, vegetables, meats and meals in search. From the basics of potatoes and carrots to more complex dishes like burritos and chow mein, you can simply ask, “How much protein is in a banana?” or “How many calories are in an avocado?” and get your answer right away.”

The nutrition info is available in the US (English only) for both the web and mobile browsers, as of May 30th, and more languages, foods, and features will be added to the service as it moves forward.
