No, I don't believe it's always caused by the lactose in milk, sometimes it's purely the milk that is the issue whether lactose free or not.
I've gone to using Alpro to mix with my oats, a small quantity because it's not the best
thing to be drinking, but it gives me no issues at all and I get to eat (well drink) a decent oat shake that way, chocolate flavoured to boot but mostly because the cholcolate version of the Alpro has less overall fat.
