Sounds like your ingredients.bsm file is corrupted or deleted. IIRC, with every new edit BS makes a backup to the *.bsm files.

Look in the Beersmith programs folder and see what's up.

Search your c: drive for the newopts14.opts file and delete it.
BeerSmith will recreate it when it starts and your ingredients will be back.

This happens to me if my machine crashes while Beersmith is open.
