You must decide for yourself what minimum threshold you will consider acceptable for profiling. There is no minimum level of absolute peak heights that applies to every sample. As a rule of thumb, if the peaks are small enough that you question whether the compound is present at all, you will not obtain reliable concentration measurements for that compound.
