I was just reading the ingredients on a packet of walkers crisps and it says that it's suitable for coeliacs but lists MSG from wheat in its ingredients. How can it contain wheat and be ok at the same time?

There are some ingredients that are made from wheat but the processing to make the ingredient is such that either no gluten is left or it will test at below a set acceptable level. Most will have no issues with those items but a few will. If you are well healed you could choose to try them and see if you tolerate. Chances are you will be fine but everyones body differs.
