This should help.  Cheers, Jerry Cohen

"Residual lignin carbohydrate complexes (RLCC) were isolated enzymatically 
from spruce and pine pulp. The RLCCs contained 4.9–9.4% carbohydrates, 
with an
enrichment of galactose and arabinose compared to the original pulp 
samples. The main carbohydrate units present in all studied RLCCs were 
4-substituted xylose, 4-, 3- and 3,6-substituted galactose, 4-substituted 
glucose and 4 and 4,6-substituted mannose. These units were assigned to 
carbohydrate residues of xylan, 1,4- and 1,3/ 6-linked galactan, cellulose 
and glucomannan."
