Nutrition SearchGoogle Nutrition Search

Making it easier to do quick research and maybe shed a few pounds along the way

Google announced today on its official search blog that it is rolling out a new search feature that highlights nutritional information about food. While searching for food often yielded nutritional results, Google is now pulling together that information into the well-known "card" interface to display at the top of search results. Making the search of "How many calories in popcorn?" will return a card showing the number of calories in a cup of air popped popcorn (it's 31, in case you were wondering) along with drop-down menus where you can adjust the specifics of your search. Google says this new functionality will work with over 1,000 different fruits, vegetables, meats and complete meals right at launch.

The new nutritional information cards are English-only for now, and will be rolling out to users in the U.S. over the next 10 days. We did a few quick searches on our phones and desktops without receiving the new cards, but they should arrive on all platforms in due time. Now all you have to do is use this nutritional information to your advantage and maybe shed a few unnecessary pounds this summer.
