Nutrition information for 1000 different types of food will from today be available in google search. Google today announced the new service where you by just typing “how much carbs are in corn” you will directly get the nutrition information in your search result.
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.
This is a service that I am sure many people will start to use. It is so easy to just get it in your google search or by using the voice feature on your phone you can get the nutrition information without even needing to type a single letter.
I have done some tries on google to test this out myself but could not find any results yet. According to googles blog it could take up to 10 days before it is widely available. Let me know if you try out this feature and what you think of it.
