Can smoked turkey breast deli slices be "processed" meat?

bmorecupcake | Apr 10, 201006:23 PM

I define "processed" meat as something like hot dogs and salami where everything is ground up with spices and re-formed, as opposed to something like roast beef or pastrami. I always assumed smoked turkey breast deli slices were just a large turkey breast cured/smoked and then sliced. I read the labeling on a sliced turkey breast package today and it read "Turkey Breast (with white meat added)". The ingredients listed "Turkey Breast and Turkey White Meat ... Hydrolized Soy Protein". Two types of meat, along with MSG, leads me to believe this is a processed product. Does anyone know more about this? Also, isn't breast meat the same as white meat?
