I am mostly a food you could have a product of in your hand

I am well known by some as a British figure

Could this be

Benjamin?

I caused torsion in the 20th century in the Jewish land

Could refer to Benjamin Netanyahu (had a stint as leader in the 1990s) or even David Ben-Gurion (first leader of the State of Israel)

I am mostly a food you could have a product of in your hand

This could be referring to Eggs Benny (yes I know it's Benedict, yes this one is weak)

I am well known by some as a British figure

This could be any major British figure, from Benjamin Disraeli to Benny Hill

I am more known by my nickname. Who figured?

Most Benjamins aren't known as Benjamin, they're known as Ben or Benny (or in the case of Pres. Netanyahu, Bibi)

How about

Pig.

Torsion in the Jewish land:

Jews don’t eat pig meat and the Israeli parliament outlawed breeding and selling of pigs in 1962, except for Arab-Christian areas (source)

You could have a product of in your hand:

Pork knuckle is a popular pork dish.

Britain figure:

Possibly refers to David Cameron (see piggate).

More known by my nickname:

Pig meat is generally called pork.

  • $\begingroup$ No, when I say a name, I mean a name you would give to a person. Now there might be people out there named Pig, but I've never heard of Pig as a name. $\endgroup$ – Xavier Stanton Aug 9 '18 at 2:18
