Three muscles (Semimembranosus, Quadriceps femoris, Adductor) from Podolian young bulls (aged 18 months) were processed into bresaolas, which were compared with commercial products, in terms of sensory profile and preference expressed by consumers. Slope analysis was conducted to study the preference drivers. The preference of homogeneous groups of consumers and the relationships with sensory properties of bresaola were investigated using partial least squares (PLS) regression analysis. The products differed for several sensory properties, such as sweetness, flavor intensity (P < 0.001), saltiness (P < 0.01), peppered, seasoned and tenderness (P < 0.05). The slope analysis showed that taste/flavor (k = 0.86) and appearance (k = 0.76) play an important role in orienting consumer preference, while texture (k = 0.54) is less important. No general trend was found for product liking. Conversely, PLS regression clustered the consumers in homogeneous groups: one preferred the commercial products characterized by sensory properties such as peppered, saltiness, seasoned and marbling, another one was more oriented toward properties such as sweetness, odor and chewiness, which characterized Podolian bresaolas.

Abstract

Three muscles (Semimembranosus, Quadriceps femoris, Adductor) from Podolian young bulls (aged 18 months) were processed into bresaolas, which were compared with commercial products, in terms of sensory profile and preference expressed by consumers. Slope analysis was conducted to study the preference drivers. The preference of homogeneous groups of consumers and the relationships with sensory properties of bresaola were investigated using partial least squares (PLS) regression analysis. The products differed for several sensory properties, such as sweetness, flavor intensity (P < 0.001), saltiness (P < 0.01), peppered, seasoned and tenderness (P < 0.05). The slope analysis showed that taste/flavor (k = 0.86) and appearance (k = 0.76) play an important role in orienting consumer preference, while texture (k = 0.54) is less important. No general trend was found for product liking. Conversely, PLS regression clustered the consumers in homogeneous groups: one preferred the commercial products characterized by sensory properties such as peppered, saltiness, seasoned and marbling, another one was more oriented toward properties such as sweetness, odor and chewiness, which characterized Podolian bresaolas.
