Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) show promise as alternative sensing ligands for testing in the industry due to their unique properties. These highly selective synthetic ligands have repeatedly demonstrated their resistance to environmental factors such as pH, inhibitors, and temperature. Extensive literature demonstrates that these ligands can be integrated into various sensor types. Evidence suggests that effective monitoring of food samples could be accomplished through the development of portable and financially viable sensors integrated with MIPs. This article explores the concept of molecular imprinting, as well as the potential of MIP-based sensors for food safety
