Google Search Results Will Now Show Nutrition Info


By adding new information to its Knowledge Graph (which pops up as a sidebar in search results), the company’s making it even easier to eat healthily. All you have do is ask, “How many calories are in a hot dog?” or “What nutrients are in corn?” and your wish is granted. So far, more than 1,000 fruits, vegetables, meats, and meals are part of Google’s database, and over the next ten days, the feature will launch in the U.S. You don’t even have to type your nutrition question: You can use Google’s new voice search function. It’s only a matter of time before people in coffee shops start yelling, “How many fucking calories are in green juice?” at their computer screens. [TechCrunch]
