Lactose intolerance and whey protein powder?

I'll be doing a video on youtube about this in the near future, and I would like to do a little research with you guys first. As a side effect of IBD, some of us develop lactose intolerance. I'm one of those people.

Now, it's natural to assume that because whey is a by-product of milk, it contains lactose, thus making it forbidden. But it actually contains less than 1 percent lactose. So most people, even lactose intolerant people like me, don't have trouble with consuming things with whey, specifically the whey protein powder supplements (so long as they don't mix it with milk- I mix my unflavored variety with orange juice).

My question to you is: are you one of the few that still experience discomfort that you know is caused by a whey protein powder? Thanks for any input!
