None: Instead of protein powder, just choose high protein foods. One can search the web for lists of high protein foods, and select the ones that have lowest sugar/starch, and little animal fat. A primary care doctor can evaluate to be sure thinness isn't due to a medical problem.

For most...: Whey protein derived from milk. Egg white protein is almost as good! if your digestive tract is normal, there is no advantage with hydrolyzed protein containing free amino acids!

Depends on goals: Depending of what your work out goals are, you should ingest anywhere from 0.5-1.2 grams of protein per 2.2 pounds of your target body weight per day. So for a 180 pound male, using 0.8 as your protein ratio, you should ingest about 72 grams of protein a day. The best brand minimizes the amount of carbohydrate filler and is a whey protein isolate, not a concentrate. Shop around.

That based on..: Whey protein, a milk derivative. Plant based protein powders are not as effective. Egg protein Albumin is more expensive and less palatable!
