Marine Gelatine from Rest Raw Materials
Reviewer 1 Report
The manuscript entitled "Marine gelatine from rest raw materials" is intersting and fits the scope of the Journal. Is properly assessed being a review and adds information to the area of interest. One criticism ragards the use of the term "nutraceutical" which is undefined in the text. It would be useful to remark the context when using this term and possible perspective application. Please add the following references and add it to the reference list to better clear the term and use:

Dear Reviewer and editor,

Please see revised manuscript where we cite the references listed by the reviewer.
Reviewer 2 Report
Review on manuscript:
Marine gelatine from rest raw materials by Ivan Milovanovic and Maria Hayes submitted to Applied Sciences
In the manuscript submitted for comments the Authors reviewed the feasibility of producing gelatine sourced from marine processing by-products using different pre-treatment and extraction methods with the aim of improving the technological and functional properties of the final product and improving the clean-label status of gelatines. In my opinion the manuscript is prepared properly and after a minor revision can be published in the Applied Sciences journal.
lines 27-28 – sentence should be rewritten, exactly the same begins the abstract,
lines 140, 315, 320, 330, 331 and next – for Latin names Italic style should be used
