Is it a phosphorus binder instead?
For some unknown stupid reason they manufactured some phos binders for pets with mint flavouring usually doesn't go over too well unless it's given to a dog. If it is a phos binder make sure it's flavourless & if not ask for the composition (ie is it aluminum or calcium based) & you can then ask your local pharmacy for the odourless/tasteless version with the same composition.

Have you ever needed to pill Sam? How did he react?

A cautionary note on mixing powder into food ~ Given how fussy he seems to be with food, if there is the slightest hint of flavour to the powder he may refuse to eat it - which can lead to a refusal to eat whatever brand/flavour it was added to.

Some cats are fine with extra stuff mixed in to the food, but sometimes it's just easier/faster to pill them.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do
