I was party to an experiment to determine the effect of torrefaction. One half of a bookmatched red spruce top was torrefied. The two halves were then thicknessed and trimmed for width so that they were identical. The torrefied half was both lighter and stiffer than the nontorrefied half. I think this would translate to less bellying, but only if the top was left at the same thickness.
