In brief: None

Gluten causes damage to the lining of the gut.
Assuming that you really have celiac disease, you should not eat any gluten.

In brief: Exact amount unknown

The exact amount of gluten a celiac disease patient can eat without causing symptoms is not known.
Because the patient has an allergic reaction to the gluten, it is presumed that a very, very small amount of gluten will still trigger the allergic reaction. For that reason, patients with celiac disease symptoms are asked to be completely gluten-free, in order to make the symptoms go away.
