I've got a cold :( I'm making huge pots of soup and eating/drinking bowls of them cold. I'd like to heat up a bowl here and there, but I'm paranoid that I'll lose "my precious nutrients" /golum. Does anyone know what kind of nutrient loss happens when you heat up a bowl of soup that was originally boiled and simmered and then spent at least 24 hours in the fridge?

Considering that the soup has already been boiled and simmered, I would think that any nutrient loss that may have occurred has already happened by now. That's just a guess though.
