I always figured that the big difference was that replicated food contains none of the small flourishes, differences and imperfections that real food might contain.
My take is that regardless if you request pork or chicken or beef, what the replicator delivers is all basically the same thing, a piece of textured protein with a favoring added. It isn't a piece of animal tissue, it's a generic facsimile.

If you did know ahead of time what you were eating, you might not be able to tell just by eating it.

That makes me think of Spam, or an Oscar Meyer hotdog.

This is the replicator! Your baloney no longer has a first name!
