Just when you think that Google has done everything, they do something else. The company announced today that it is adding nutritional information for over 1,000 food items into Google Search. This information will be displayed in both desktop and mobile search.
That should help people not have to sift through various links to get the info. This new addition is related to the work Google has been doing on the Knowledge Graph, which pulls in different kinds of information from across the internet that’s not easily accessible.
For instance if you ask, “how many calories are in popcorn” you will get the answer on top of search results. Pretty useful. That also works for carbs or nutrients in a wide variety of food items. The feature has initially been launched in English only and will be rolled out across the U.S. in the next ten days. More languages, foods and features will be added in the future. This is great for health conscious users.
