If you are a real calorie conscious person or are planning to replace your high calorie meal with more nutritious things, Google will make things easier for you. From today, searchers will be able to find extensive nutrition information for more than 1,000 fruits, meals, vegetables, and meats. 

When you will ask questions like "How many calories in avocado"? or "How much protein in banana"?, you will get the answer right away. For mobile owners, this is going to be even more interesting search as the query will let them hear the answer on your mobile device, if it is Voice Search enabled. Mobile users will be able to see relevant information appearing under expansion and they can freely change to other related food products or serving sizes.

The information builds on the Knowledge Graph, which works on bringing different types of information across the web. The graph connects things that are related with each other, even when the food has a completely different sounding name from what the searcher has asked for. When you will search for "summer squash carbs", Google will also display "zucchini" as a relevant food because it is also a type of summer squash.

The feature is launched in English and will be rolled out in the U.S. in the next ten days. Google will be adding more languages, features, and foods in the coming time.
