The Internet giant helps users make healthy eating choices.

Google Search can now deliver instant and detailed information on the nutritional value of food, making the decision between fries or boiled potatoes a simple one. This new tool uses Google Voice Search that that can be used from a desktop or smartphone and allows the user to verbally ask a question and get an audio answer in response.

The search engine can now offer this data for over 1,000 fruits, vegetables, meats and meals. It can even answer direct questions such as, ‘how many calories are in a banana?’ or ‘how much saturated fat is in a bagel?’ The results will also present all relevant nutritional information and related foods offering an alternative or healthier option.
