Does protein from collagen peptides count for daily protein?

    If you're swallowing it, yes; if you're putting it on your face, no. :p

    It is a very odd protein in terms of amino acid types/ratios, so I'd be very cautious if it makes up the majority of your daily protein.

    Does it count as protein? Sure. Is it a quality protein with a good amino acid profile that can support muscle building? No. And last time I checked, it's even questionable if there are any benefits for consuming it via supplement.
