Initial Thoughts

Perfect Sports Diesel whey protein isolate powder has been a staple protein supplement in the Canadian market for many years. Featuring an impressive list of benefits, it’s clear why this is our best-selling whey protein product here at Supplement Superstore.

Perfect Sports (formally Perfect Nutrition) has reinvented its brand in recent years, bringing a fresh look to their products as well as relaunches of their legacy products, Perfect Whey and Hulk. We’re going to be delving into their flagship protein product, Diesel, which is their New Zealand Whey Isolate protein product.

Presentation

The Diesel whey protein isolate package is clean, crisp, and has callouts for all the rich features Perfect Sports Diesel has to offer.

Mixability

Being 100% whey protein isolate (from New Zealand!), the Perfect Sports Diesel mixes fantastically. It’s a super light powder and blends effortlessly in water. I suggest mixing Perfect Sports Diesel in the manufacturer's recommended amount of water, which in this case, is 125ml. This offers up the very best flavour from the protein powder and allows you to experience the exceptional taste that Perfect Sports Diesel has to offer.

Taste

Perfect Sports Diesel New Zealand Protein Isolate Powder Supplements CanadaFirst and foremost, Perfect Sports Diesel is 100% naturally sweetened with stevia. That being said, this is one of the best tasting protein products I’ve ever tried. Every flavour offers up an exceptional experience that doesn’t disappoint. The Milk Chocolate and French Vanilla flavours are the typical traditional chocolate and vanilla flavours, but offer a smooth and satisfying taste. The other flavours in the Perfect Sports Diesel lineup are equally formidable. The Banana, Cookies ‘N Cream, and Chocolate Peanut Butter are still somewhat traditional flavours and offer a flavour experience that leaves you wondering if you just had the real thing. The Salted Caramel is a perfect balance between the two elements and complement each other exceptionally well. The Chocolate Monkey (chocolate banana) is again very well balanced between the two elements with Marshmallow Hot Chocolate being a lighter, almost fluffier, chocolate flavour. Last (but certainly not least), the newest flavour to the Perfect Sports Diesel product lineup, Triple Rich Dark Chocolate, is a stronger hit of cocoa but remains smooth and satisfying to the last sip.

It wouldn’t be right to omit some of the limited edition flavours that Perfect Sports Diesel has released. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is a rich spice and pumpkin mix that is the perfect fall protein. The Candy Cane Ice Cream was again a great mix of creaminess and candy cane-style mint that felt like Christmas in your shaker cup.

There really isn’t a bad flavour in the Perfect Sports Diesel lineup as there is a taste to suit every palate. We’re especially looking forward to the new Chocolate Wafer Crisp flavour that is due to hit shelves in 2020!

Performance

Perfect Sports Diesel is 100% whey protein isolate derived from New Zealand dairy. This means the cows are grass-fed and pasture-raised, resulting in a pure and natural protein product.

Perfect Sports Diesel whey protein isolate is also gluten-free, lactose-free, and peanut and nut-free. This makes for a very easy to digest protein, meaning minimal to no stomach issues; no bloating and no gas!

In addition, Diesel is banned substance tested and certified by Informed-Choice as being safe for sport, meaning that it’s WADA compliant.

Pros/Cons

Pros

  • Everything you want in your protein powder and nothing you don’t.
  • A great range of flavours to suit every palate. All the flavours are exceptional; it’s the tastiest way to build muscle! 
  • 100% whey protein isolate, the purest form of protein available. Plus, the protein is derived from New Zealand dairy, so it is grass-fed and pasture-raised.
  • Gluten-free, lactose-free, peanut and nut-free.
  • No artificial flavours. It’s 100% naturally sweetened. 

Cons

  • Being so pure, the protein does mix very thin. I suggest following the manufacturer’s guidelines for the amount of liquid to use with this protein powder for the best experience.
  • No carbs or fats (also a pro!). If you’re looking for this, I’d suggest looking at the Perfect Sports Hulk or Perfect Sports Perfect Whey.
  • It’s difficult to choose a flavour; they’re all so good!

Final Thoughts & Rating

It really is easy to see why the Perfect Sports Diesel whey protein isolate is the best-selling protein powder here at Supplement Superstore. With the immaculate nutrition profile and features, including being gluten-free and lactose-free, as well as the fact it’s naturally sweetened, it’s the perfect option in your shaker to help build muscle and aid recovery.

Rating: 10/10

There’s a reason it’s the best-selling whey protein supplement here at Supplement Superstore!
