    Quizás tasteful, pero no se si sea una palabra "poco" técnica para lo que necesitas.

    Hi Randalserr

    From Random House Unabridged -Dictionary.com

    pal·at·a·bly, adverb

    —Synonyms 1. delicious, delectable. Palatable, appetizing, tasty, savory all refer to tastes or aromas pleasing to the palate and in some cases to the olfactory nerves. Palatable has the least positive connotation of these terms, often referring to food that is merely acceptable and not especially good: a palatable, if undistinguished, main course; a barely palatable mixture of overcooked vegetables. Appetizing suggests stimulation of the appetite by the smell, taste of food, and is the only one of these words that can also refer to food pleasing to the eye: the appetizing aroma of baking bread; the table contained an appetizing display of meats, cheeses, and salads. Tasty refers to food that has a notable or especially appealing taste: mixed with bits of a tasty sausage; an especially tasty sauce. SAVORY refers most often to well or highly seasoned foods and applies to their appeal in both taste and smell: a savory, succulent roast of beef, spiced with slivers of garlic; the savory aroma of a simmering duck sauce. 2. pleasing, satisfactory.
    —Antonyms 1. distasteful.

    La palabra en inglés es "palatability" cuando hablas de que un sabor sea agradable o placentero, o en este caso, aceptado por el animal evaluado.
    "to evaluate the palability of the 3 rations fed to goats....etc"
