How long does cooked rice stay fresh in the refrigerator?
Leave cooked rice uncovered until it's cooled slightly. Refrigerate in its cooking container and cover when cold. Next day, use a serving spoon to transfer to a freezer bag, separating the grains by applying pressure to the bag, squeezing out all the air and spinning the bag to twist closed. Seal with a plastic tie and refrigerate until needed.
The rice will keep about as long as fresh milk and retain its just-cooked perfection; it's easy to just squeeze servings out of the bag to reheat in microwave or pan or oven. This storage method has the great advantage of reducing handling of the cooked rice.
The flavour of the rice will be as good as when it was cooked; it will stay tender and the grains will remain separate: ideal for making fried rice or for serving with curries and other hot dishes, or using for stuffings.
Store cooked, drained and cooled pasta in the same manner, using tongs to transfer to the bag. Again, it will keep about as long as fresh milk, and the flavour will be unaffected; just microwave it as needed, layer it and bake, or toss it with sauce in a frypan when you're ready. Top with cheese and you've instant pasta dinner!
There are those who don't believe cooked rice and pasta can be stored this way; try it and see for yourself! Provided the initial cooking is done properly, the results will be great.
The keeping qualities of cooked, refrigerated foods depend upon handling and storage; bear this in mind when storing all foods.

Cooked rice is a night risk food group for food poisoning and therefore it would be better to cook a fresh batch of rice rather than use pre-cooked rice. However, if you have bought the rice pre-packed and part cooked, it will have been treated to make it safe, so use it by the use by date on the label of…
The best estimate of how long cooked rice can be at room temperature before being refrigerated is 2 hours. Then, per food service recommendations, you have 4 hours to get the rice to 40 degrees F. Cooked rice is prone to the growth of Bacillus cereus. That bacteria actually produces spores that can withstand cooking. Once the rice cools to reasonable temperatures, the cells can germinate and start to grow and produce toxins. Those toxins…
Rice: White, long-grain, regular, unenriched, cooked 12.875 Brown, long-grain, cooked 13.5 Rice: Brown, medium-grain, cooked 13.625 Rice: White, glutinous / sticky, cooked 21.125 Rice: White, medium-grain, unenriched, cooked 16.125 Rice: Wild, cooked 10.375 Rice: White, long-grain, precooked or instant, prepared 12.125 So, let's say on average a spoon 13 calories, then for 4 spoons it is 52 calories + the corns (50 calories) so totally around 102 calories.

Uncooked (raw) rice is very dry. Cooked rice is moist and is soon contaminated by airborne bacteria. Cooked rice should be rapidly cooled and then kept in a freezer for long storage, or in a fridge if it is soon to be used. Cooked rice being reused must be heated to a high enough temperature to prevent bacteria causing food poisoning.
