Overcooked rice?

May sound like a stupid question but here goes.

If u boil your rice for too long (forgetting it on the hob basically!!) and it gets quite mushy does it lose more nutrients?

Cheers

    When you overcook rice it generally goes solid and awful rather than mushy.

    ok basically my brown rice usually takes 20 mins, was just wondering if I forget and leave it on for 30-35 mins and when I get there most of the water's gone and the rice is quite mushy at this point would much nutrients be lost?

    As long as you dont burn it, it should be fine mate.

    Gaz if there is loads of water it will not burn (unless stuck to pan) it will go mushy - Like chinese rice

    I'm not so sure what it would be like with brown rice, but with white rice - if you've really over cooked it and its mushed, could add some milk and sweetning agent like honey and make a sort of rice pudding dessert from it? I noticed they do this in N.African countries with left over rice.

    I have eaten brown rice for the last 6 weeks as my only carb source pretty much and still have 4 more to go. I am an expert on cooking the stuff now lol.

    mmmmm unflavoured brown rice
