How to stop tasting "boar taint"?

carmellolb | Mar 20, 201907:16 AM     6

Since I was very young, I've been tasting a strange taste in certain meats. Most strongly in pork. I find everyone enjoys a meal, but I smell and taste a rancid, putrid taste/smell. I finally found what it seems to be, something called boar taint (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boar_taint), and only 75% of people taste it. I seem to have a strong perception to it, and my parents have a very slight perception to it.

I have found ways for farmers to eliminate it, but what about if they haven't and I just want to enjoy my meal? Is there something I can do to eliminate it? If not, is there something I can do during cooking my own meals to eliminate it?

I do not want to become vegetarian or vegan.

Thanks,
C
