I have more legs than a human
No zoo can hold me no person can touch me.
I can live in space
I can live in -271

I will survive even when the world ends

I suspect you are a:

tardigrade

Reason:

All of those things listed are traits of a tardigrade. 8 legs, microscopic (can't be held in a zoo), have lived in space, temp ranges match that wiki page, have survived multiple mass extinctions. I wasn't aware that they're in foods, but it seems reasonable.
