In brief: Is synthesized

by your body. You don't have to eat meat to get it.
Plant proteins , dairy products will give plenty of amino acids the building blocks , including essential amino acids which are not synthesized by your body. . If you are a vegan then need more additional precautions like B12 Iron supplementation etc.
