The increasing interest in biosensors as analytical devices is surely related to their simplicity, inexpensiveness, adaptability to automation, continuous monitoring and control. Food samples are commonly analysed by these new tools. The most common biosensors developed, used to analyse food components, to assay their freshness and to detect preservatives or pesticides contained, are briefly described. Biosensors capable to act in non-aqueous solvents and having a real or potential interest for food analysis are also briefly reviewed. Finally, we describe some of our recent research in this field.
