Résumé: Ageing of pork can positively affect eating quality. However, assessment is often limited to a trained sensory panel. The consumer perceptions about the influence of ageing (2-10 days) on the sensory properties of grilled pork were evaluated. Tenderness was the only parameter affected sufficiently by ageing to be perceived by consumers, with the pork at 6-12 days being more tender compared with the meat at 2 days. Pig gender influenced tenderness, juiciness and taste, with these characteristics being stronger in pork from female pigs compared with castrated animals.     http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.foodres.2012.05.008
