Default Flaked rice vs Minute rice

I can't remember this one to save my neck. I am going to brew another batch of Biermuncher's Cream of Three Crops hopefully this weekend. And I bought some flaked rice since I was ordering some other stuff anyway to save myself a trip to the grocery store. I know with minute rice that I have used many times in the past, you just toss it in the mash. What about flaked rice? Can I just mash it as is or do I need to gelatinize it first?

I think you'll need to gelatinize it first.

It was cooked before being run through hot rollers. There is no need to cook it again.

You know, if I hadn't had the momentary lapse of intelligence, I could have just gone back to Austin Homebrew's site and answered my own question. Thanks to those who took the time to reply.

To anyone else who may still have a question:

Pregelatinized rice flakes have been produced specifically for brewing. The process of gelatinizing makes the starches readily soluble and digestible by the naturally occurring enzymes in barley malt. This allows the flakes to be incorporated directly into the mash with other grains. Because flakes have a large surface area and are pre-cooked, they hydrate and disintegrate quickly. Filtration time will be normal. Pregelatinized rice flakes are made from medium-grain rice and produce a light, clean and crisp characteristic in the finished beer.
