We compute the?s?s??asymmetry in the proton in chiral effective theory, using phenomenological constraints based upon existing data. Unlike previous meson cloud model calculations, which accounted for kaon loop contributions with on-shell intermediate states alone, this work includes off-shell terms and contact interactions, which impact the shape of the?s?s??difference. Using a regularization procedure that preserves chiral symmetry and Lorentz invariance, we find that existing data limit the integrated value of the first moment of the asymmetry to the range??0.07×10?3≤?x(s?s?)?≤1.12×10?3?at a scale of?Q2=1GeV2. In contrast to some suggestions in the literature, the magnitude of this correction is too small to account for the NuTeV anomaly.
