Boar taint is distinctive and perceived as unpleasant during the cooking and eating of pork and pork products through a combination of sensory qualities like odor, flavor, and taste (Vestergaard et al.
Therefore, the primary objective of this study was to compare the effects of dehairing methods and sex on pork quality traits, as well as on the reduction of the boar taint compound androstenone and skatole in tissues.
Thus, the best way to evaluate boar taint objectively is to measure the levels of both compounds (Babol and Squires, 1995).
