At first, I thought it might be some type of seasoning blend containing salt, but the low sodium content on the nutrition label indicated that salt was not an added ingredient. As it turns out, rosemary extract is being used as a natural preservative to prevent spoilage and lengthen the shelf life of a variety of foods, including ground turkey breast.
