Turkey ham is a ready to eat, processed meat made from cooked or cured turkey meat, water, formed into the shape of ham and often sold pre-sliced. Turkey ham products do not contain any ham or pork products. It is a ready to eat product that can be consumed cold or heated. Turkey ham was developed by Jennie-O and was first introduced to American consumers in 1975. Turkey ham is produced from turkey meat such as cured turkey thigh meat and other meat from animals, which can be machine deboned. Some turkey ham products are manufactured with added water, which adds moisture and weight, and some are manufactured using binders, which serves to bind the moisture and fat in the meat to improve the texture. Turkey ham typically has a 5 percent fat content and some turkey hams are produced fat-free.
