A hardwood-derived carbohydrat:e composition comprising monomeric sugars in an amount of 75-98 weight- percent based on the total dry matter content of the carbohydrate composition, wherein the monomeric sugars include monomeric xylose, the amount of monomeric xylose in the carbohydrate composition being 55-80 weight- percent based on the total dry matter content of the carbohydrate composition, and wherein the carbonyl content of the carbohydrate composition is 1000-4500 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.
