Google now does nutritional comparisons

Came across this tip on a reddit post. If you type two foods separated by vs such as
broccoli vs kale
in the search bar, the result will be a nutritional comparison between the two foods. Handy!
(Apparently kale has fat content. Who knew?)
Google search on 'bacon nutrition' gives me a side bar that gives 763 calories for 3oz. It also gives 85g fat, 0.1g protein. 85g fat * 9cal/g = 765 cal.
There's a menu for different forms of bacon, raw, 'cooked', baked, pan-fried etc. This 763 is for 'cooked'. I suspect this entry should be relabeled as 'cooked bacon grease' (since it is nearly all fat, and minimal protein and sugar).
I reported as a labeling error.
Here's the relevant USDA page:
"Basic Report: 10864, Pork, bacon, rendered fat, cooked"
do your own search here:
Type just a single food, like radish, and on the right side of the page of search results is the nutrition data... Very cool. Hate hate the search tools for plain foods on sites like nutritiondata.com
