The halal food industry is committed to ensuring sustainable practices that align with Islamic dietary laws and promote food safety. Biosensors, which are analytical devices that combine biospecific recognition systems with physical or electrochemical signaling, have emerged as valuable tools for achieving these goals. Thus, the article here provides the applications of biosensors in ensuring sustainable practices in the halal food industry. Biosensors offer rapid and accurate detection of non-halal ingredients and enable the identification of potential contaminants that violate halal standards. Biosensors can be integrated into smart food packaging systems, providing real-time monitoring of food quality parameters and reducing food waste. Additionally, biosensors contribute to the detection of pathogens, toxins, and other contaminants in food products, enhancing food safety and preventing harm to consumers. Thus, biosensors have significant applications in ensuring sustainable practices in the halal food industry through monitoring food quality, preventing contamination, and promoting food safety. By addressing challenges and advancing biosensor technologies, the industry can further enhance sustainability, and protect consumer health and the environment.
