Using raster attribute other than 'value' in map algebra

In the old Single Output Map Algebra statement, I could specify which raster attribute I wished the operation to be performed on by listing attribute name in the following format: raster.attribute. 

For example, a habitat raster with multiple attributes in addition to 'value' could be multiplied by a mask raster in SOMA by typing:
mask * habitat.type
where 'type' was a different attribute. 

This does not seem to be possible in the ArcGIS 10 Raster Calculator.  Is there another option?
