A hardwood-derived carbahydrate composition comprising monomeric sugars in an amount of 65-85 weight- percent based on the total dry matter content of the carbohydrate composition is disclosed. The monomeric sugars include monomeric xylose, the amount of monomeric xylose in the carbohydrate composition being 50-70 weight- percent based on the total dry matter content of the carbohydrate composition. The carbonyl content of the carbohydrate composition is 5000-20000 Mug/g based on the total dry matter content of the carbohydrate composition. Further is disclosed a method for producing the hardwood-derived carbohydrate composition and the use of the same.
