Collagen is often a protein that's made up long chains of proteins strung together, like chains of linked building obstructs. When it is broken down, short segments of 3-5 amino acids form, called peptides. Peptides are active molecules and referred to as "mini proteins". So, a peptide is a portion, or else a building block, of a protein.
