    Depends what the reaction is. For example for the enzyme lactase, it will break down lactose into fatty acids and glycerol. Since fatty acids are by acidic, the pH will decrease. However, this will not happen for all reactions.
    Lactose is broken down into hexose sugars (galactose+glucose), not fatty acids and glycerol. The hexose sugars are pretty much neutral.

    However, this answers MrLol's question, if you replace "lactose" with "lipids" and "lactase" with "lipase"
