I'm not sure such a site exists because there's no funding to independently test multiple brands of probiotics. Your best bet may be to pick a few brands you're interested in and contact the manufacturer. Ask them to supply information from independent testing labs on quality, viability, etc.

Yes, Consumers Lab. Although I think you have to pay for the information? The last time I checked the probiotic that got the best rating was Culturelle.
