sorry Katharina, but I think tn is more on the right track and this could well be a typo for "ink"
Lists of excipients do not usually say "including..." or "incorporating...", and the compounds listed above are those often used in the ink used to print on capsule, tablets etc.
there is anyway another typo there: "lecithine" should be "lecithin"
