Google search engine has a nutrition comparison tool that allows users to search the names of food and see how the nutritional value measures up against other kinds of food.

Google has launched a nutrition comparison tool that allows users to search the names of food and see how the nutritional value measures up against other kinds of food.

For example, if you type in compare apples and oranges in the Google search bar, the tool generates a list of all the nutritional facts that you would find on the items, including the carbohydrate, fat and sugar content of the fruit along with the recommended daily value of fiber, protein and other nutrients.

Chefs can enter ingredients to see how the nutritional value of a recipe fluctuates with each individual part put together.

Google search also suggests recipes that contain a combination of the food that was entered into the search.

Google spokesperson is quoted as saying: "We noticed that people were doing a lot of food and nutrition searches — multi-step searches on one food and another food. These things are often compared to one another, so we thought, why don't we make it easy?”

There are some issues with the accuracy of the food comparison tool, because the nutrition content often depends on how the food is prepared or cooked and this isn’t factored into the nutritional information displayed.
