Refactored Probiotic Suggestions From Kegg

The original version worked off exact matches to strains and a few species in KEGG: Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes. We looked at only the products produced by a probiotic.

The revision aggregate strains into species which means that we can now match against retail probiotic mixtures. We looked at BOTH the products produced and product consumed by a probiotic.
