I threw a sweet potato to bake at 3:00 @ 375 degrees. It only takes an hour to cook, but I left it in for 2 hours because I had to go somewhere and was out later than I thought. Is there any difference in nutritional value if it was baking for so long? It's very soft, looks pretty much the same though. I can microwave another one if I have to. It's a silly question, I know.

Dude there is no difference, and why are you suffering yourself with cooking it, if I'm in a hurry I eat it raw and it tastes quiet good actually.

Not sure on the nutritional information, but good gods- that was a really dangerous thing to do. Leaving the house with something in the oven and not coming back for an *hour* after it was supposed to be done? Hope the fire department is stationed very close to your house because under different circumstances, they may have had some work to do :( Be more careful next time. The nutritional content of that potato should be the least of your concern after that stunt.

there's no starchy taste with a raw sweet potato?

I don't how well it compares to raw yams, but raw yams are disgusting. Cooked yams, however, are fantastic.
