Turns out you can compare oranges and apple thanks to Google’s techie expertise.
The search engine gently started a nourishment comparison program last year that enables users to readily compare the nutritional values of different foods.
So, for those needing to eventually set a simple ending do the argument of apples versus oranges, they are able to easily seek “compare apples and oranges,” and they will see that oranges toes forward with five less calories per 100 grams, along with less carbs and sugars.
Google told NPR that it was getting most of its own data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Nutrient Database, so you can compare anything the Department of Agriculture keeps advice on.
“We found that folks were doing plenty of food and nourishment searches — multi-measure searches on one food and another food,” Google representative Krisztina Radosavljevic-Szilagyi told NPR. “These things in many cases are compared to one another, so we thought, ‘why do not we make it simple?'”
