Food Facts: Coconut water can be used as a substitute for blood plasma.

Used for Emergecies only, coconut water can be used as a substitute for blood plasma.

The reason for this is that coconut water (the water found in coconuts – not to be confused with coconut milk, which comes from the flesh of the coconut) is sterile and has an ideal pH level.
Coconut water is liquid endosperm – it surrounds the embryo and provides nutrition.
