Turkey bologna: practically meat

INGREDIENTS: Turkey ingredients (mechanically separated turkey, turkey), water, modified corn starch*, contains less than 2% of corn syrup, sodium lactate, salt, dextrose, flavor, sodium phosphates, sodium diacetate, sodium erythorbate (made from sugar), sodium nitrite, extractives of paprika.
*Exceeds amount permitted in regular turkey bologna.


Now, a few things stand out about that. First, I rather enjoy "ingredients: turkey ingredients." Second, that's a lot of sodium things. But the best, though, is how it has more corn starch than permitted in "regular turkey bologna." What's regular turkey bologna? Why is this turkey bologna excused from the rules?

For those who have been paying attention, this is the same package of turkey bologna that I have already blogged about. Now that's something I thought I'd never say.
