Default muscadine vine sap

been reading up on wild edibles and such. I cut down a big muscadine vine about 2 weeks ago and noticed the large amount of liquid dripping from the cut (it is still dripping!). I was wondering if anyone knew whether or not you could drink that liquid in a survival situation?

Muscadine vines are well known for "bleeding". If you prune them this time of year, you will witness it big time.

In a survival situation, there's a lot of things you could drink -- I doubt the muscadine sap would hurt.

I have known some Grape vines to die from pruning them this time of year. They actually bled to death.
