Who we are

TURSAM INVESTMENTS LIMITED  is an Agribusiness-Food processing enterprise founded on the 1st day of March 2009. Its humble beginnings are based on fruit growing particularly in mangoes at a family farm in kiboga District. The Enterprise started selling a lot of mangoes at cheap garden prices. It was later realized that if there was value addition through fruit juice production, more income would be generated. In 2013, one of our team members called Turyatunga Sam a food Science student of Kyambogo University by then did a research under the supervision of ASS.Prof.George William Byarugaba Bazirake-a food scientist and the dean faculty of science Kyambogo University. Our first production and test marketing was done at Kyambogo University under our name OMEGA JUICERS.

We produce purely 100% Natural fruit juice from our locally grown fruits namely mangoes, bananas, pineapples, passion fruits and oranges and currently our  juice is available in over 15 districts in Uganda. For instance in kampala,  Kyambogo University canteens, makerere university canteens, Uganda Christian university canteens,  most retail shops and supermarkets in Banda, areas of Namugongo, Kyaliwajala and trading centers such as Kireka, kikuubo, New taxi parks and old taxi parks, Ntinda in Nakawa Division, Kampala…to mention but a few. We currently got a lot of market in upcountry districts of Mubende, Mbarara, Kiboga and Bushenyi.

Benefits of Mangoes

Mango fruit is rich in pre-biotic dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and poly-phenolic flavonoid antioxidant compounds. According to new research study, mango fruit has been found to protect against colon, breast, leukemia and prostate cancers. Several trial studies suggest that polyphenolic anti-oxidant compounds in mango are known to offer protection against breast and colon cancers. Mango fruit is an excellent source of Vitamin-A and flavonoids like beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin. 100 g of fresh fruit provides 765 IU or 25% of recommended daily levels of vitamin-A. Together; these compounds have been known to have antioxidant properties and are essential for vision. Vitamin A is also required for maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin. Consumption of natural fruits rich in carotenes is known to protect the body from lung and oral cavity cancers.

Fresh mango is a good source of potassium. 100 g fruit provides 156 mg of potassium while just 2 mg of sodium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure.

It is also a very good source of vitamin-B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin-C and vitamin-E. Consumption of foods rich in vitamin C helps the body develop resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful oxygen-free radicals. Vitamin B-6 or pyridoxine is required for GABA hormone production within the brain. It also controls homocystiene levels within the blood, which may otherwise be harmful to blood vessels resulting in CAD, and stroke.

Further, it composes moderate amounts of copper. Copper is a co-factor for many vital enzymes, including cytochrome c-oxidase and superoxide dismutase (other minerals function as co-factors for this enzyme are manganese and zinc). Copper is also required for the production of red blood cells. Additionally, mango peel is also rich in phytonutrients, such as the pigment antioxidants like carotenoids and polyphenols.
