Doesn't say in the book, but it makes it sound like they are somehow different.

A peptide is a shorter molecule formed from the linking, of α-amino acids while proteins are composed of polypetides; hence, it is longer. A peptide can be composed of less than 50 amino acids, while a protein hormone is composed of more than 50 amino acid.
