    optimum organoloeptic attribute?

    Hello,

    I am translating the presentation material of a pork import company.

    Their fulfillment and commitment assure that only the minest meat, with optimum organoloeptic attributes, reaches the consumer's table.

    What does "optimum organoloeptic attributes" mean?

    Do you think it only means "delicious"?

    Thank you,
    Higurashi

    Hi,

    higurashi - I am not a teacher but I can answer your question because "organoleptic" is, I would say, an "international word"
    Please take a look here: Organoleptic definition - Food Processing Technology

    Best regards,

    Hi LeszekN,

    Thank you for your quick reply.

    I know the "organoleptic test" and its meaning. However, I do not understand the definition of "optimum organoloeptic attributes". Could you give me other word which can be replaced to "optimum organoloeptic attributes" in the particular sentence? Then I would probably get a picture.

    Thank you,
    Higurashi

    Their fulfillment and commitment assure that only the finest meat, with optimum organoloeptic attributes, reaches the consumer's table.

    best qualities?

    'fulfillment' could be replaced with 'compliance with the highest standards'.

    Hi Higurashi,

    I am affraid I can't help you
    As I see it there is no a single word which could replace the phrase "optimum organoloeptic attributes" in this particular case, because an expert in this area (food industry) has to consider a set of attributes of a pork before he can say it is OK.

    Best regards,
    Leszek

    "attributes" = characteristics/inherent quality.

    "with the best inherent quality" would express this.

    "minest meat" - ??

    May I have a go?

    Their fulfillment and commitment assure that only the finest meat, with (the) best organoleptic properties, reaches the consumer's table.
