Elaine Patterson has always been curious about the links between diet, the gut microbiome and health. After receiving her Bachelor of Science honours degree in Neuroscience from University College Cork (UCC) in 2009, Elaine expanded her education and experience further afield and completed a doctoral degree in Microbiology, also at UCC.

During her post-doctoral research at APC Microbiome Ireland, Elaine bridged the gap between her background and knowledge in Neuroscience with that of Microbiology and dived deep into research that investigated the microbiome-gut-brain axis.

Moving from Cork to further afield, Elaine transitioned from academia to industry and spent four years in Finland working as a Senior Scientist at DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences (now IFF Health).

Today, Elaine is a Health Science and Technology Lead for Brain Health in Novozymes OneHealth, Cork. In this role, she investigates how dietary supplements, including probiotics, can impact brain physiology, function, and behaviour to influence human health, contributing to new and exciting innovation and product development.

Elaine has published scientific articles in the fields of microbiome, probiotics, and health throughout her career.

I am a big believer in gut health and how it’s intrinsically linked with mental health. As a chef, I always try to keep this in mind in my meal plans, and the cookery demo on October 10th will reflect this, while also keeping in mind the target audience of busy people who often need to eat on the go.

The demo will focus on making quick and easy meals while still keeping good gut health in mind. We can all fall into the trap of grabbing a takeaway to avoid making dinner, but actually, it’s quite easy to whip up something healthy, tasty and nutritious in a short space of time that won’t leave you feeling bloated.

I’ll focus on the creation of easy, protein and fibre rich meals, with plenty of colour, using ingredients like eggs, chickpeas, tuna and salads. I love to add a splash of colour to my dishes, so, for example, I can demonstrate how to make a quick and easy salsa to top off that tuna salad, or how to make a feast from seasonal vegetables.

I’ve done numerous cookery demos, and I’m happy to chat to attendees throughout, explaining my method and why the dishes I’m making are good alternatives to takeaways. I am a fan of PrecisionBiotics products and have no problem discussing my own experience with using them.
