The powder does not contain milk or milk proteins.
The CUSTARD someone makes from it might contain milk
products, if it's stirred into dairy milk to make
the custard, but you can use soymilk or nut milk
(trust me, rice milk does not work!).

I don't know where you're getting your information,
but this is from http://www.ocado.com/webshop/product/Birds-Custard-
Powder/10764011

"Allergen Information

Does Not Contain:
Nut, Gluten, Wheat, Egg, Fish, Lactose, Sesame,
Peanut, Celery, Mustard, Soya, Shellfish, Milk,
Sulphites, Phenylalanine, Oats

Ingredients
Cornflour, Salt, Colour (Annatto), Flavouring."

And that is exactly what it says on the can of it I
have in my cupboard. You have to add milk-- dairy
or non-dairy-- and sweetener. It's not like a cocoa
powder mix where you just add water.

If you don't believe me, here's an article on it
from a British newspaper:
http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/food-and-
drink/features/retro-delights-birds-custard-
789786.html

"...So what happened to Bird's? The answer is
nothing. It's still there on the supermarket shelf,
boasting the "original homemade taste". This is
nothing special – the complete list of ingredients
is "Cornflour, Salt, Colour (annatto), Flavouring".
Sampled for the first time in maybe 40 years, it was
unobjectionable, two-dimensional, unchanged."
